Im curious if any others have found themselves talking to these idiots from AZ or CA trying to sell you blades for above retail. These guys are freakin unreal, wont take no for an answer and will call back and tell you they will kick your arse and f your wife. :w00t:
The number is not working when you call it back. They go by West Building supply and there are tons of complaints and some good info on the idiots online but no one can seem to stop them.:wallbash: My first call from them was years ago, with the same thing, threatening my family and me for hanging up the phone.
Anyone based in AZ wanna make some cash on the side? I have heard that one of these idiots got dropped flat on his butt when one of his "leads" caught up with him in person at his office.
The last time I hung up on this dipsh*t he call me back and when I didnt answer he tried three times to crack my voicemail pin on my cell! This wouldn't be good enough for this guy:hang:

"'Scuze me, but what is your name?................Steve? Steve, can I have your company name? ................ OK, and what is your address?................Why? So I can report your company to the FCC for violating federal do-not-call laws. You see, this phone number is registered on the Federal Do Not Call list, and by calling me, you have violated federal law."




Or, you could do be like Tom Mabe.

I haven't got those calls for sawsall blades but used to receive a bunch for diamond blades for concrete cut off saws. The guys can be a real pain in the arse. Lately I have been getting a lot of text ads on my cell. That's what I really want :furious:. Anybody know if that is against the no call rules?

Would they happen to be the same idiots that, well, goes omething like this:

John, buddy! It's been awhile. How's the wife treating you lately? Wanna trade?

Who is this?

It's ______ from "contractor supply"...you remember me...hey, I have a couple of quick jokes for ya, then I'll tell you about our two specials, and I'm outta your hair...deal?



They don't understand no. I hung up on them once as well, then the idiot called me back and tried to chew MY a$$. They, or some other lousy ripoff company tries this with me about twice a year.

Many years ago I had a phone solicitor first ask me if I was interested in buying sandpaper. I told him no I wasn't, then he asked If I wanted to buy a fishing pole:eek:. I sware this is a true story and he had the nerve to get mad at me for not buying his random items. I was really confused at what he was trying to do:shutup:.

Last time I said "I don't use sawzalls because that means I made a mistake and I am perfect and don't make mistakes" It took him about 10 seconds of silence before he was like "Well I have other stuff too like gloves and other saw blades" then I hung up on him.

I pissed off one of their guys once and he called 2-3 times a day for over a month. I just ignored the calls because it was always blocked and usually around the same time. Of course the day I pissed him off he probably called about 12 times.

Next time I plan on telling them that I don't purchase ANY supplies that it is the responsibility of my employees to supply everything. Or just tell them that I don't own tools, I just sub everything out. Maybe 1 of these tactics will work.

Or we could tell them to send the supplies to 1234 Main St Anytown USA.

usually prisoners have to make collect calls but maybe they are using cells?
Pun intended? :laughing:

What has always worked for me is to say I am about to go broke, do you need any work done at your house?

Usually they hang up on me instead.
