"Cancel" is printed above the #3 key on my vtech land-line phone. If I am home and the Caller ID shows that it is what can be defined as a spam/scam call, and the ringer is ringing like made, I simply hit the #3 button to cancel the call. It works like magic. After, I hit the "off" button to make sure the call has disconnected. All other junk phone calls, that show up in the missed call listing, merely are deleted. (Much longer story, but I'll stop here.)
This call went to my answering device. When I tried to listen to it I heard some mumbling so i pressed 'delete'.
Every day,every day, sometimes more than once!!No napping here!!!
Received call on 8/15/2013 from this number -- Caller ID said "Lisa Christofan". Today (8/16/2013) same phone number but Caller ID said "Unavailable". They hung up before it went to VM so no message left on answering machine.
People 65 and older are eligible for a free Medic Alert system. If you have fallen and can't get up with one of these systems you have access to an EMT and 3 of your closest friends or relatives. Press 1 to get your free Medic Alert System or press 5 to removed from our list. It goes on to say that for less than a dollar a day you can have one of these systems. OK, what they are saying is that they will give you the system for free but then you have to pay to use it. The message was long and this is not all that was said but it gives you an idea what the call was about. Unfortunately I haven't trained my voice mail to press the opt-out button but I suspect that it wouldn't do any good anyway. The fact that this number is listed to a cell phone rather than a landline listed to Medic Alert makes the call suspect also. Please note that all they said is that they would give me a free Medic Alert system. They did not say they were calling from the Medic Alert company. Next online visit will be to the FTC site to file a complaint. By the way a call from this number yesterday was shown as from Lisa.
Annoying to say the least!!!!!

Been called twice today by Lisa Christofan from this number. We just let it ring and she leaves no messages. Apparently it's a scam to promote some medical alert system, whatever THAT IS! I called the number back and a voice says the number is not in service.
This is a recording with a male voice offering "I've Fallen and Can't Get Up" garbage to senior citizens. Needs to be STOPPED!!!! One big scam!!!
called no message at 11:15am pst 8/15/2013
Did,t recognize name, went to answer machine. no message
this Lisa C loves to call every one..she just called our # 2 PM, left no message, between this nutsy and the nutsy Sears bunch disconnecting with AT&T sure looks good..I pay this very high phone bill with internet connect and home security connect so I do not want to listen to these Cool aid drinkers who have nothing to do with their time except take mine..
Lisa is making alot of calls....
This person called today and also 6 times yesterday,8-14-2013, when I was gone. I do not know this person. And they do not leave a message.
I do not know her so I didn't answer my phone.

NEVER answer a phone call (mobile or land line) from a number you do not recognize- if it's important- the CALLER will leave a message. These SCAMMER/SCUMBAGS WILL NEVER LEAVE A MESSAGE
Received call from 716-990-3465 at 9:48 am EDT. Caller ID read Lisa Christofan. Received a call from same number/person Wednesday, 08/14/13. No message left yesterday. I picked up on this morning's call and a recorded medical equipment message started. It seems the scammers have got on to a new spoof where the caller ID shows a persons name as I've seen this with 2 other calls within the last week.

Did not answer but this is going on call block
I received 2 calls from this number, one at 2:18 pm and the second at 3:39 pm, never left a message. I called the number and it said that the cricket number you have called is no longer in service. This is a scam!
why are you calling. i'm on the do not call list. if you call again, i will report you.
They just called twice in the last 2 hours. NY call. Knock it off Lisa!
