Any of you still have a FAX machine.
Let's all, as a group, start clobbering this phone#
doesn't matter it's not a fax, it's even better, your machine should be set to continue attempts

Depends on your definition of a scam...I dont think its a scam if they deliver on their promises...Ive been to these before, and they offer to take title to your timeshare for a fee. If they actually do, I dont see it as a scam.

If you call them, then they have your phone number and will hound you and sell your number. Sorry, I won't go there.

Google has a great thing called 'Google Voice', basicly, they give you another number you can use for things like this...i always keep my main number AND a google voice number on my cell phone at all times....if i'm worried about a scammer i give out that number, it i end up getting spam calls, its easy to change the google voice number

Best way around that is to wait until your boss goes to lunch, then call from his office phone.

With a Google Voice number, you can also block and report as spam. It forwards to your regular phone. You can set it up so that your real number won't show when you reply to a Google Voice call.

Free, and very useful.

The only thing that is a 'slight' pain is that everytime i go to call anyone, it asks me 'call with google voice' or 'call without google voice'...So its an extra button to remember to hit each time
