@hostessman It's very hard here to get your phone number if you are not listed.

We do, and even though our phone number is on the Do Not Call List, they still call. I knew it would not work since the Do Not Call list is run by a government agency, the FTC, and anything run by a government agency rarely works.

Yes I do and most of the time not knowing or recognizing a number, I let the good ole answering machine pick up which when they do not leave a message, clearly explains it is bogus !

When I had a cell phone, there were at least three of these stupid calls, every day. Now, I don't get any, with our home phone.

Lately my phone has been ringing with all sorts of bogus calls which I let go to voicemail. Rarely do they ever leave a message but it's so annoying to have to keep looking at the phone to see who's calling
