What happened to the "Do Not Call" list??
We cut the land lines a decade ago. It was blissful not getting the spam phone calls. In the last 6 months or so, it seems that the robot-dialers are having a field day. No, I don't want an extended warranty on anything. No, I really don't care if this is my "final warning." I don't have a home loan, so I don't need your "special lower rate."
I think I have more blocked numbers on my phone than I have contacts.
During the election, if I got political solicitations, I would ask, "Who are you stumping for? Good. I will vote for the opponent, because they don't bother me with stupid phone calls that waste my time."
As far as the other scammers who call: I have come up with a solution. If I don't recognize the number (or if it comes up with "no caller ID"), I will be answering the phone: "Federal Bureau of Investigation, Telephone Fraud Division."
