Re: Apple Support Robo call?

I got a call once where the real human did everything possible to make me say YES. They record these calls and even if you decline their "services or product" they send it anyway and if you complain they claim you said YES. Editing audio files is easy.

Re: Apple Support Robo call?

I also got deluged by calls from Molly. Just hanging up is smart but I got tired of being smart and decided to press 1. The first thing I said was I wanted to speak to Molly.
