TWQ@ Postal & Phone Spam Solutions

We all get postal and phone b(not computer spam) sent to us. TWQ (the Weekend Question) asks about solutions.

Do you have any tips on how to lessen the amount iof spam that comers through our door, or the phone scams that happen? List as many as you wish.

My answers are:

Phone scams:

* Tell a caller to hold on for a moment, then leave them waiting on the phone.

* Talk in a made-up language

Postal scams

*Refuse to accept mail if the mailman brings it in.

* Return it in an unstamped envelope.

* Rip it up.

Now it's over to you

I use a tool called Mailwasher, you can have it dump the spam without you even seeing it...

I had one friend do this:

*ring*

Stranger says, "Hello, I'm with *company* selling..."

My friend says, "Hola? You give me free money! Yay! Mama, listen, this guy give me free money! We want T.V.! Give us T.V. too with free money!"

Stanger: *click*.

I had a brother who blew a police whistle into the phone after a heavy breather (a pervert) kept calling after 2 AM. Mind you, I'm not condoning this. But for the curious at heart, it stopped the calls. :D)
