I'm always amazed people answer the phone when the name is a phony name on the Caller ID.
Never answer the phone unless you recognize the number as a friend or business you work for or buy things from. Having your name on the State & Federal Do Not Call List is worthless as these criminals totally ignore the "Do Not Call List" and probably use it as a list of valid numbers to call and scam people with their crap. Perhaps the only real cure is to actually know where they are physically located and have a little "Mafia" style justice physically deal with them and their place of business so it is permanently out of business. Maybe the local & state prosecutors will "look the other way" if this were to happen to enough of these scammers because it would make the local & state prosecutors lives easier with less complaints coming in to them.
