Most of you know I hate “tele-monsters” with a passion that is unequaled.
I’ve subscribed to NOMOROBO.com for my home phone and they take care of 99% of the “tele-monsters”. But there was that single ring before NOMOROBO would pick up the line and then disconnect the “tele-monster”. So I found a “First Ring Eliminator” on Amazon and installed that. Now I don’t hear that annoying first ring. (It’s unfortunately not available right now.)
But , there are some that just won’t quit. So I have used a feature that is within Xfinity/Comcast telephone service. I selectively forward only calls from the “tele-monster”, that won’t learn, back to the number he says to call! This takes presidence over NOMOROBO and is enacted immediately.
Here’s a screen grab of what happened…
Notice that he tried to call me four times on Friday, indicating a pattern that he will continue to pester someone. But as soon as he got the forwarded call, he stopped. Probably trying to figure out WTF happened !
He got a taste of his own medicine.
