Does anyone have their phone numbers on this list? I am tempted to put the business phone on this list. It is continually ringing from these places wanting to sell add on health insurance and car repair crap. Does it work?

Just a guess but tend to believe the lists are ignored by marketers. If I get a call call like that, I block the number so no more calls from that number. Also get calls where caller ID says Potential Spam. Don't answer those either

Your probably right on them ignoring that do not call list. The phone is her business phone. She sold stuff all over the USA so I just about got to answer the calls. Dang, I just stepped outside to P, looks like the dang grass grew 3" today. Looks like another 3-4 hours of mowing tomorrow afternoon. Don't tell ol shameless but it'll be on a green mower. Ain't no Orange mower dealerships within a hundred miles of me.

It runs in streaks for me at least. Will get 2 or 3 everyday for a week or so, then nothing for a few weeks, then back on again……. But in the office at work, good Lord, it’s about 3 or 4 every hour all day long, 90% of them call in on the fax line, just rings and rings. We have to fax programed to not take any incoming calls.

my luck is like that of Lars.... off and on.   One of my techniques is to 'click' on the call but not say anytning if I do not recognize the number...if they want to talk to me they will, and when it is one of those calls I put the phone down till they are finished and the line is dead, then back to normal.  While back I had a long stretch that I did not get any calls.

I recently called a guy about some mower parts.
A recorder picked up and said this phone doesn’t accept calls from telemarketers.
If you wish to talk to this person press 2.
I was quite impressed. I wish I’d of asked him about it.
Lately the calls I get are from local numbers
Some even pop up a name I recognize

The ONLY 'do not call list' that actually works is a 'self administered' one. I've yammered for decades that every telecom provider should give US control to put 'them' on the 'list', simply by pressing *666 when we get a call. This is 'see spot run' easy to do,has been for 40+ years.
The CDN DNC list kinda works, but pollyticians,'surveyors', charities are exempt !
Most (all ?) incoming calls 'listen' for you to say 'hello'. If you say '1234' or last didgits of your number, their computer gets confused, dead air, wait 1-2 seconds hangup. A real calling human will reply 'hello,hello, any one there ?"....

As said they don't work, I've went as far as blocking calls in my cellphone from them and that doesn't work either, they just call from another number.  They set there with a phone bank of multiple numbers and call multiple numbers at the same time and whoever picks up first is who they talk to, then rinse and repeat.  The only thing that has helped some is a lot of the newer cell phone will label the call as potential spam so you don't answer.  Land lines without out caller ID or where you sell stuff all over the country would be almost impossible to try and figure out how to stop the none sense.

yeah, you have to *666 EVERY spammer number, BUT they only get you ONCE with THAT number. Now IF they're using a set of numbers(nnn-nnn-0000, -9999) you can block the entire set.

In the early days, the cell provider STOPPED Spammers from accessing their phone numbers....

You 'should' be able to block ALL 'unknown caller' numbers, as well as any 'bad' area codes.

Do not call hasn't seemed to help, at least not much. Like everything else only the law abiding people abide by the law. We have even gotten calls where MY name comes up, as if I would call myself.

Coworker and I were discussing this yesterday. If wish to play along and give them an account #, explain you find it easier to remember if letters are used instead of numbers.

Very low tech and frugal Ok CHEAP. No caller id and no cell service at the ranch yard. So as I sit around more, I answer every call. Many times there are little blip, blip sounds  100% give away that it is a scam. Wink So now the challenge is if my wife or I wastes more of their timeLOL or get them cussing. LOL


Tom with all this they never leave a message on the machine if we don't answer.  So if you have enough people that are repeat customers, and want your product enough have all calls go to the machine and you call them back.

In MO, you could not put a business phone on a Do Not Call list, just personal.  However it didn't take scammers long to start calling with "Survey's" which are exempt also.
