So, inspired by some of the responses here, today I recorded a message to play into the phone should they call back. I found an audio file of that
three tone, "boo doo BOOP!" that plays at the start of "We're sorry, the number you have dialed is incorrect or is no longer in service" messages. I
put that at the start of my recording, and then recorded myself, in my most professional voice, saying:
"The number you are dialing from has been blocked, pending investigation. Your number, (their number,) has been reported in association with known
illicit and illegal activity. Until such time as an investigation pursuant to international treaty stipulations has been completed, your calls will be
intermittently intercepted and monitored. Thank-you. This message will repeat." (Message repeats.)
I didn't want to claim to be law enforcement, as impersonating law enforcement is considered a crime under certain circumstances (possibly all
circumstances, I'm not certain,) so I just went with that vague "investigation" and "international treaty" tact lol.
So, they called back and I played the message as planned. After one and a half listens, I heard someone mutter and expletive, and they hung up. I'm
not one for schadenfreude, but I'd be lying if I said that wasn't the least bit satisfying...
