On the average I get numerous scam calls daily.
Most of the time I listen and press1, then tell them How much of a &%^&@ I think they are for scamming. They usually hang up.
Do any of you get these calls?

On our landline phone we don't answer unless we recognize the number. It goes to answering. If we start getting too many hang up, etc on the answering machine we turn it off. We also have a blocker on the landline. That is what we do when we go to FL for the winter and when we get back it rarely rings so we turn the answering back on. The key is don't answer the first time. On the cell we reject all we don't recognize and then block.

I recorded my answer machine to say:
"If the purpose of your call is for telephone solicitation, I suggest you hang up and start looking for a real job."
I was amazed at how many times I got cussed out.

I have Fairpoint FIOS internet and they require a phone. I do use it for some outgoing calls as my Verizon service will drop a call occasionally.
