Re: Getting weird calls from "V" phone numbers. What is going on?

I never answer if I do not recognize the caller I.D..  If I hit the "ignore" button on my mobile phone, it goes to my voice mail.  So does that generate more telemarketing and spam calls? 


@Kisa  Another option is to go through your call history and mark the call as spam and permanently blocking that number from calling you.

I definitely need to add that “do not respond to numbers I don’t recognize “ comment to my voicemail announcement!

I could never understand why the CRTC/FCC allowed pbx's the ability to generate their own Call Display info rather than the Telco generating it either as the exact number of the trunk/line calling you or an agreed contact number for the company/organization calling you. Thus you should be able to call back any business calling you and expect a person to answer.

 

I answer virtually no calls where I don't recognize the Call Display info.
