BLACKWOOD, NEW JERSEY -- Looking for insurance quotes, I reluctantly put my unlisted phone number on this website. I didn't want to, but they wouldn't continue or provide quotes unless you did. The next morning from 8am on, I got 4-5 phone calls in a row, getting my answering machine each time and instead of this moron leaving a normal message, it had all the makings of a prank call, playing 2 or 3 full minutes of this music taking up the whole tape, call after call, screwing up my answering machine. I had to sit there and play thru to 8-10 minutes of this crazy music to erase it, knocking out my other real messages. I called them back and read them the riot act and told them they better take my number off their list or else.

My advice is NOT to give your phone # out on the Internet, these vultures will harass you to no end at all hours. What should be a thing of convenience turned out to be a nightmare and would have continued. What scares me is that my phone # is still out there to be sold to some other crazies. Warning: Better to select a company and call them yourself. Good Luck

Companies will do this to get your phone number, then they will have sales reps calling and bother you, thinking you're interested in whatever they are selling. I never, EVER give my phone number on sites like that. If it is not optional, but needed to continue, I just reverse the last two numbers of my phone number or I use an old phone number I had that is no longer connected (Both numbers are not assigned to anyone, it just says it's disconnected or the call can't be completed as dialed). I don't want to just put someone else's number in for them to get harassed by calls.
