Whenever I get a call from a number I don't recognize, I don't answer it, and I will bllock the number. Most of the time, they are telemarketers anyway, trying to sell me something, so I just don't give them a chance to do that anymore. You did do the right thing though by checking the number out. You just can't be to careful nowadays, that is for sure.

i think it is better to ignore.....but you never know if you get an emergency call from your family or friends...

@hema7213 I know the numbers of my family, and some friends I do, but those that are in an area, where I don't have any family or friends, those are the ones that I ignore, as more than likely, they are telemarketing calls anyway. From now on, I am not going to answer any call, from any number that I don't recongnize, or are not in my area.

Never answer any questions or give any information to a stranger on the phone. They can say they are whoever they want, but you don't have to believe it. If you think there might be a problem at your bank, call them at a number that you know is actually for the bank. Never call back a number that they tell you to call. There are scams and scams out there.

It is good that you did not give them any of your info. I hope those people get caught doing things like that. So many scammers out there.
