Eff Off, Spam Faxers

So, every morning since Friday (usually starting around 6am), we've been receiving a half-dozen spam faxes (or rather, spam fax attempts, since I'm up and intercepting the calls to prevent waste of paper and ink) from...

Number Unknown (and yes, we have anonymous call block),
514.958.0000, and

Eff you, spam faxers. And eff you, state of California, for not offering the most intense level of nuisance call block available to consumers in other states.

PS--I am super busy, miss my regular blogging, and hate to roll out such a negative nellie blitz now that I'm taking a moment's break from Cricket Feet Showcase-based work to post at all. Meh. Spammers suck.

I'll ask Dick what he did - I can't remember at this point - but I think we called every number at the bottom of the faxes as well as reporting them to the state, who claimed they could do nothing - and yet, the 2am faxes (oh yeah!) suddenly stopped. Knock wood.

Sheesh. I get these too. All hours of the day, wasting all of my too-expensive fax ink (and testing all of my patience). I've tried calling the numbers at the bottom, but no luck for me - and it's been happening for about six weeks now. GRRRRR.

You can register your number on the national "Do Not Call" registry. I have been told it works for fax numbers as well as phone numbers. Worth a shot, www.donotcall.gov

Grrr. That's so annoying!! Hopefully they'll stop.
