DO NOT PICK UP!!! Why would anyone answer an unknown long distance number??? NEVER engage them in conversation OR ask to be "removed"! That will put you on a list of "good numbers" And NEVER call back! If you do, you are "doomed" to repeated calls. VOIP (voice over internet protocol) internet phone service allows scammers all over the world to call us using a "spoofed" (fake) caller I.D.s If you block one number they will just "spoof" another one. Many are in a foreign country. Just ignore them!!! And don't use your name on answering machine or voicemail. Just use your phone number. Expensive call-blockers will not stop them (new "spoofed" numbers). Reporting them to the gov't. will not stop them (foreign soil). And asking them to be removed only makes it WORSE. It's an epidemic.
This is an odd number 210-198-3357...it seems I can't block it because the fourth number cannot be a "0" or "1". I have a feeling the call comes from somewhere out of the USA. When they call I will just pick up and put the receiver on the drawer let them sit there. They have called before and I am not interested but they call back. Now I know it's just telemarketing. Ha below I see they called me on 9-30. It seems this company solicits workers out of the USA to make these calls.
My ID said "Name Unavailable" I do not pick up the phone if I do not recognize the number and do not call back if there is no msg.
Him: Si, buenos dias, buenos dias,buenos dias,buenos dias,buenos dias? You habla espanol?
Then he hung up.
