When I moved into my first apartment I was given the phone number of someone who was being sought by credit bureaus. I got so tired of those calls that I finally changed my message to "If you are looking for Mr. Deatbeat Scumbag, he no longer has this phone number. I have no idea who he is or where he is. If, however, you are looking for (my name), I am not able to come to the phone right now. The only ones here are the cats and they do not speak People. Please leave a message and the felines will see that I get it."
