Sorry, Wrong Number

Marilyn is being harassed by a collector that's got the wrong person, so Dave tells her to harass them back!

QUESTION: Marilyn has a collector calling her, but he’s got the wrong person. They keep harassing her. They are asking for her Social Security number, but she isn’t giving. Dave has an unusual method for dealing with them.

ANSWER: Call them about six times a day. Harass them and try to get a real supervisor on the phone. You have to shut this down, and ultimately you can put a block in your phone and send them a certified letter saying to stop calling you. As a last resort, you can buy a sports air horn and blast their ears out when they continue to call, since you consider this a prank call. If you keep pounding them one of these ways, you’ll get rid of them.
