    I'm pretty sure the whole button thing was so that John Oliver could defend himself in court saying that he did not press the button that started the calls (which they could try to pass off as harassment).

    These guys are off the chain they call me and i hang up, then block the number within 5 min they are calling meet back from a different number that happened five times in a row. The FCC needs to get with congress and pass laws banning these calls. I dont want them to put 10 grand in my bank. I dont have a drivers license so tell me how the hell is my auto warranty about to expire??? Bastards all of em lol I hope they die horribly

    Someone spoofed my number and called a guy several times. His girlfriend called me and we had a pretty long talk about this guy's serial cheating and her confusing bisexual thoughts.
    I hope she found a guy who appreciates her.

    I got a Robocall that the IRS was going to burst through my door if I didn't transfer money to some account. I knew it was fake because it was unusually threatening and had expletives.
