Anyone else been getting these phone calls, where you pick up the phone and say "hello?" and then there's nothing but silence on the other end for like 15-20 seconds, until there's a kinda creepy recording of a woman saying "...Goodbye" and then it hangs up?

It's been happening to me here for a while now, I just got another one at 11pm tonight. Creeped me out.. guess I've watched too many horror flicks like The Ring, The Grudge, and One Missed Call lol Chuckle

But just wondering, has it been happening to anyone else on here Dunno

Its automated international telesales.

Their system phones ahead of the sales people.
and if they are all still engaged in calls, it cuts of after alittle while.

Frustrating as you dont get too tell them to FUCK OFF.

Got my sixth one for the week last evening....

I crack my kids up because as soon as the real person comes on I pretend I'm Mexican, German or Russian etc and can't understand them....since most of them are Indian, usually I can't.

"Ya? Sprechen sie Deutsche?....Denke sie sich das kopfdocter sehen?...Achtung!"

They quickly hang up.

I once made the mistake of saying I was sick with the flu. The telesales guy didn't take it in and said "oh that's good!" and started his spiel. I bellowed down the line "Don't you listen, half-wit? I'm sick! But not as sick as you'll be if you keep calling!"

I received about twenty beep beep calls after that one.

lol I know huh rolling

lucky laylow cleared it up, first time I got one of those "....goodbye" calls I kept thinking, I got 7 days to live Mr. Green

I did a check on google and it's right, when they can't get an telemarketer to take the call in time, it has the creepy goodbye message..
no wonder there's often like a 3 or 4 second gap before they usually start talking too.

Sometimes when I hear the delay on the other end, I automatically hang up, but one time when I did that I accidently hung up on my in-laws from Singapore Chuckle

lol Laughing Laughing Laughing
I used to always tell them "one moment please" and then I'd quickly run to my brother's room and be like "hey bro one of ur mates is on the phone"
and then I'd hand him the phone and it'd be someone asking for donations from spastic centre, or indian telemarketer on the other end Very Happy

yep.




i dont tell em to fuck off anymore, i just put the phone down on them mid flow, as soon as i know its just a shit call, and not someone i want to talk to.

the calls where no-one talks i hang up on in seconds, if it was someone who wants to speak to me they will ring back, or it wasnt important.

I just look at the caller ID and don't answer if I don't know the number. If it was important, they can leave a voice mail.
