One of the many considerations we weighed in the Renovate versus Move debate was knowing we could never replicate good neighbors like we have now. Not just our immediate next door neighbors, but so many on the street are just solid folk.
The spamathon continues, now up to 44 (and counting) calls, each leaving a message, since 1:21pm, all with a spoofed 234 prefix and different last four digits. I TRIED, in vain, to undo the call forwarding from the My Verizon app. Good luck with that.
I COULD hop in the car and run to Bedford and do it, but I thought maybe calling Verizon, they could do it remotely. I repeat, good luck with that. I got Pakistani Pete who after 20 minutes said he was still trying. Meanwhile at least 10 calls came in that time.
The kids are all away on vacations in other parts of the country. So I called my next door neighbor. We have each other’s front door keys and know alarm codes etc, so she’s over there now, pressing *73 to undo the call forwarding.
What a good friend. What a good neighbor. Reasons #1-100 why we thought staying in Bedford was the right move.
Verizon said blocking the incoming number on my iPhone is useless. I thought so. What could have caused such a flurry of spoofed calls I don’t know. It was frustrating as hell.
It’s quiet now. No more forwarded calls and I think we’ll keep it that way. Anyone who needs me knows my cell phone. The spoofers can call the landline all they want now. No message machine on. Ha ha ha.
Not kidding about the nonstop calls. This is but a few. Funny though, simultaneous to getting a spam call forwarded from my landline, Verizon, the 855 number, called on my cell looking for a review of my customer service interaction. (see 2:56pm) 😂😂
