Don't answer the phone if you don't know from whom the call has came. Simply don't. If you do, it proves you are a 'live' line, and they sell that info to others.

I get so tired of this call. "Hi my name is Heather from credit card services. We would like to lower the interest rate on your credit card. Press one to hear about our program?"

Personal feeling I think our state legislature rather than constantly sending anti government messages to Washington ought to do some thing about this. How about authorizing the State Attorney General to file suit against some of the more blantant robo callers and get some money out of them rather than defending some of the anti government laws that our legislature passes which are doomed to failure. When was the last time the State of Utah won one?

My personal thought is the anti call list is a joke. I feel our Senators or Congressman should do something about it.

They are more interested in voting to get rid of Obama care 39times. It is similiar to the Utah Legislature wasting time voting their so called message bills.

I do not answer calls from numbers I do not know.

When telemarketers won't stop, feign interest in what they have to offer. Give then a fake credit card number, they will come back and say the number doesn't work so give them another fake one. When they finally get wise kindly explain to them that if they don't call you won't give them the run around. That if they don't waste your time, you won't waste theirs.
