Letter: Bogus calls galore
The letter from Luann and Ed Brueggeman (“Leave us alone already,” Monitor, Aug. 6) resonated. We get the credit card advisories too, but they may have stopped after I stayed on long enough to tell a person to desist.
That strategy, however, did not halt frequent messages from “John,” telling us that our emergency alert system, already paid for (presumably by some kindly stranger), was ready to be installed. I finally waited long enough to speak to someone (clearly offshore). When I told them to stop the call was terminated. The calls nevertheless continue.
This one is particularly annoying as a blatant scam. I’m surprised that the Federal Trade Commission or the New Hampshire attorney general hasn’t already dealt with it.
