hckilgore1,

Send a PM to SG, the owner of this forum. He is listed first on the Member's list, in the Main Menu. Give a link to the spam, as above, and he will remove it.

I agree with the waste their time. I get about two calls per week from US Online Pharmacy trying to sell me Viagra. At first I would ask them to remove me from their call list because I don't take any medications. They would hang up and call me again (sometimes twice in the same day). Then I registered my number with the national do not call list and waited the 30 days for it to take effect. That didn't work (even after I reported them for continuing to call me).

Now when they call I just ask a bunch of stupid questions (sometimes even talking to their superivsor), I act like I am going to make a huge order, then I give them a bogus credit card number. After all that I tell them I am just wasting their time. They hang up and I do something different the next time they call. I can't stop them from calling, but I have fun with it.

Much like the you-won-the-lottery emails, these things can be a source of endless entertainment.
