Be careful of calling 800 sex lines

This was submitted by a customer and we thought it was worth republishing although we should point out that we have dialed an awful lot of 800 numbers over the years and this certainly isn’t typical.

As you know, I am trying to get a specific vanity number. Well, when I called this number using one of the toll free prefixes, it turned out to be a sex talk line. As soon as I realized this, I hung up. Unfortunately, I had neglected to block my number from caller ID. Thus, the sex talk business now had my number. Much to my chagrin, they started texting me to try to entice me to call the sex talk number. Messages like; Hey baby, I’m hot and horney. Call me tonight.”

As if this wasn’t bad enough, salt was being rubbed in my wound because, with my phone plan, I am charged 20 cents for every incoming text message. So, in addition to being assaulted with this crap, I had to pay for it.

Even under the new “do not call registry” law, a company can continue to call you for up to 90 days from the date of the last business relationship. I knew they would maintain that my dialing their number constituted a business relationship. Plus, the only number I had to call them to attempt to complain was the sex talk number and I would be charged $1.99 a minute if I called that number.

With the number of text messages they were sending me on a daily basis, it was starting to get expensive and I was desparate to put an end to this harrassment without changing my phone number. What was I to do…?

On the 3rd day of receiving these texts, I can up with a brilliant idea. I would threaten them with the loss of what was most valuable to them; the effective loss of their vanity number.
The next time I received a text from them, I sent them a reply text which read, as follows;

“If you do not remove my number from your call list, I will set my computer to continuously dial your number and keep it jammed so you can’t receive any other calls.”

I haven’t received any more texts from them.

Thanks for yoiu help in attempting to obtain my vanity number. I’m looking foward to hearing from you.

    "'Toll_Free_Numbers.com' is an amazing resource unprecedented in the entire toll free number industry. Their search engine provided me with the information that I needed to acquire the number that matches my web url address. The benefit that this number has given to my marketing efforts for my businesss has been tremendous and I didn't have to pay a single cent.


    "So called industry experts say that they don't know how Mr. Quimby is able to make a living, but that is only a vain attempt to cover their greed. Mr. Quimby has gained my loyalty, as he has done for thousands across the country. This loyalty has guaranteed him longevity in a business dominated by underhanded corporate suits who would love nothing more than to see him fail.

    "I have already bought two other amazing numbers from him for seperate endeavors. In the event that I need another number, or anyone I know needs a number, we would never even consider looking anywhere else but on Toll_Free_Numbers.com.

    We bought this phone line as an emergency number for my teenage sister. My husband suggested a vanity line so she could easily remember the number. We were able to find one that included her name. Thanks for all the "hand holding" you offer along the way!

    I could not be any happier with my experience getting a toll free number from www.tollfreenumbers.com. Your website is easy to navigate and your search programs gave me more options that any other toll free website I could find.

    I did not think it was possible to get a number so quickly. I found the number I wanted, then purchased it online, and I "instantly" got my number. It could not be any faster. You even have a way to reserve the number in case I found another number that was better.

    By far this was the easiest web page with which to research and purchase my new toll free number! Being able to "port" my number to my own carrier was important to me. Tollfreenumbers.com allowed me to purchase exactly the number I wanted.

    Not only do I appreciate a good value for a service, but your response was beyond my expectations. After trying to find an 800 number for my new business, only to get frustrated with my own search, I found your service. You helped me find the correct number for my business and I used your free service to hold the number. I purchased my new number from you later the same day, and you had it working on my home line BEFORE my credit card had been approved. Wow, I was amazed how fast you do business! Thanks for the great service.

    Testimonial 691 out of 1983

    Thanks for the service. I was skeptical dealing with individuals online that I was unfamiliar with. In fact, I toyed around for about a month, though I had my sights set on 1-877-FOR-WRITERS for some time.
    When I finally pursued the name in earnest, I was amazed that within less than a minute after my credit card was authorized, 1-877-FOR-WRITERS was operational and directed to my home phone. When I called Bell South yesterday to swap the temporary service over to a permanent provider, I told the Bell South representative how this had all transpired. He was absolutely amazed by the story.

    Bill at TOLLFREENUMBERS.COM was extremely helpful in getting us set up initially with a numerical toll free number, but also in explaining who a specific descriptive toll free number could be so much more beneficial for our marketing drives. He really knows this business and made acquiring our toll free numbers very painless!
