Once again today I got a call from a company that says I need to pay them $500 to keep my shop listed on google or they would consider me out of business.Now I get this call 6-7 times a month and it has been going on for 6-9 months.I call google and do what they ask and that the company calling me isn't part of them,I have called the FBI and complained but the calls keep coming.So since I'm not a fan of the new world order and have had enough and since you all are much more advanced of mind then I and these call just make me mad what do you think.

Since I have my own business I'll tell you what I've done.
        I IGNORE THEM.

 For years they have been saying the same old thing. Your listing Will be dropped etc.
Frankly my dear, I don't give a dam n.
  They have never followed thru.  yak

See if you can get their number blocked from ringing your phone.  If it is a Scam, which it sounds like it is, Google will never drop you...

Is your number on the "National Do Not Call" list? If not, then register your number with them. If anyone calls you with those sort of calls, which, they are not allowed to, you report the number. I've had "promotional" calls to my cel phone which I reported...... online by the way, and the calls stopped. No cost involved, can't hurt to try it.

Well I already am on the National Do Not Call BUT they come in on so many different numbers including local numbers.I've calmed down now and I'm just going to do nothing and just hang up.I really hate this new world,the only good thing is watching people walk into things while looking at the smart fun or tripping over stuff.

 Since you have put up this thread, I've continued to get these calls. As soon as the voice says "do not hang up", That's exactly what I do.

If you have VOIP (internet based telephone service) from Vonage, the setup page allows you to input a list of numbers they will block automatically.
