Help with Telemarketers

Ok, I have a Telemarketer "Homeowner Credit Repair Services" or something like that. They continue to call and call and I've asked them not to call and told them I am on the "Do not call list", but they continue to call. It's the same guy and he thinks it's funny and continues to call. The problem is, their number does not show up on my caller id, it only show a 3 digit number like (212, 341, 232, etc.). Does anyone have any ideas how I can track these people down?? This has become harrassment and I want to find out who this is.

Just got off the phone with Verizon Wireless and they said there is nothing they can do. Nice!

The next time they call, tell them that you are recording the phone call for your lawyer and then tell them not to call back.

We had a company pestering us constantly. I did the above and the calls stopped immediately.

Have them come over and keep coming over and keep coming over with no sale. Laugh as they walk out.

Puff, quit calling Larry.

My question would be..if you know it's them calling by the caller ID, why the #*%^ are you answering the phone. They'll eventually get tired of calling and getting no answer and quit.

Just answer the phone and ask them to please hold a moment
and go set the phone by the TV with it on some kids channel or
the church TV channel

Last resort... the old police man's whistle blown directly into the
phone usually ALWAYS works!

Act like a homosexual(just be yourself), and try hitting on the guy. Hopefully the guy won't be like Puff and will hang up.
