Do You Respond to Automated Calls?
Well STOP IT!
It just encourages them.
As soon as I hear a NON-Human voice, the phone gets SLAMMED DOWN!!!!
If a RB human is on the line, the very moment I detect it is NOT a personal call,
the phone gets SLAMMED DOWN EXTRA HARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WA6BEN gets lotsa COLLECTIONS CALLS (He bounces most checks over $10!)
I say Hello three times then hang up. I figure if it is a slow friend they will call again.
I think robo calls should be illegal, and ENFORCED.
THE DNC list is getting to be a joke.

I agree. DNC puts you on a list, when you are not even on a call list in the first place.

If we get more than one or two from any particular number, we reprogram the phone to not ring for that number. Otherwise, if we don't recognize the number we either don't answer or if close to the phone, force it to voicemail immediately.

Ring Ring - - - Caller ID says "private caller"
. Normally I wouldn't answer except that we do have one important person that doesn't want her name to show up on Caller ID so
I answer the phone.
"Hi, this is Karen calling for American Families for Progress" (not the real name but close)
"May I ask you three questions?"
(I think - Three questions? OK, won't take long)
"Sure Karen, go ahead"
"Who are you voting for in the next presidential election?"
"Thank you" Click
I wonder what the other two questions were?
This is the correct approach and simple to implement. Personnally, I went on a vendetta against these calls early on. When I picked up the phone and it was a robo sales call, I would just tell them the previous owner of the home died and I am the new owner. Thank you very much; bye.

If you have to worry about the cost of HF e-mail, you can't afford the boat.

I did that once. (Then I had to get a new cel phone.)

I dont answer my phone at all. It is for me to make calls, not for other people to call me.
