    When I get a stack of all with "no postage necessary"... I just mail them back home!

    Mailing them back home sounds like a great idea, I hope I remember to follow your lead the next time I get a bunch. On the same general topic, I wish they put a small fee on every cell call, maybe that would slow down the Robo calls.

    All of mine goes in the burn pile. I have done that, but got tired of it.

    I wish I could do something with these robo calls!!!
    I may have been born at night, but it wasn't last night.

    robo calls, when I'm bored will let them run the story out until they ask how I'm paying? My reply... with your credit card! My guess they only get paid on "the sale" they make so dragging out the call pisses them off!

    Has anyone had the IRS call and if you don't respond you will be in violation and charged with a criminal offence. I also get a whole lot of calls in foreign languages. The return is great they have to pay postage.

    Yep, send those return envelopes right back. I fussed about junk mail once to my mailman and he said junk mail pays his salary, with the decline of regular mail due to internet and email. So I send them back whenever I can. Doing my part for the USPS!

    There was some guy that was doing that, hacking up tires and sending to them in boxes. The local USPS office can bar you from sending, but he just went to a different USPS office. The old link for it is dead.
