    If you ever had called gamestop they say their whole thing about the buy and sell used games. So i said that to a telemarketer and he bought it! He asked questions about how connecting a ps2 to the car and that thing you plug in to connect more controllers. so i made a price up for that and he thought he really called gamestop. Now he will cross my number of his list for sure .:cornut: :lol:

    or if your in the US, sign up to the governments Do Not Call list. https://www.donotcall.gov/default.aspx

    this will NOT stop ALL of them but it will stop most. we used to get like 10-15 a day and now we only get like 10 a week
