I text the number (in hopes they get it), telling thelling 'i hope you die of Cancer'. Third time getting a call, I sign that number up for local cults (there are a few), Jehovah's witness, scientology, and the first google search search ad for healthcare (you'll get 10 calls a day from nationwide healthcare brokers for weeks). If I ever get phishing link via text, I do whois/ICANN registration lookups and sign that address up for the same things with that number or name as the 'attention to' field. Then report of it to the FBI's cyber crime tip off website, and my states scam database.

I rarely get a return interaction from the same people.

Does anyone else get literally 10 scam calls a day?!? Starts same damn time everyday. Like that’s really your full time job

I have not received a single scam call in 15 years on my number, but suddenly I got called 30 times in a day by the same scam with different numbers each time. It's crazy.

I got at least 5 spam calls just at my time at work today. I don't know what list my number is on but it is driving me insane. Shut the fuck up guys, I'm never answering your calls.

7726, spam texts and calls you can forward the number to that. All carriers share the list and will threaten the provider by disconnecting them from the network

I don't anymore ever since I answer them all like, "Pete's Pizzeria and Abortion Clinic where last week's loss is this week's sauce. Pete speaking." Haven't gotten a spam call in 2 years.🗿

This week I have been getting 12-15 a day. I have been trying to figure out if there was some kind of data breach that suddenly made my number popular with these assholes

I did for a week or two. It was an actual person on the other end, so when I got sick of it, I did the murder movie victim scream at the top of my lungs. It stopped after that

They use computers to auto dial and you don't get connected to a person until you pick up And it detects your voice on the end of the line.

I started to talk to them, talking bs, cursing, pretending to do the same job, or just wasting their time with long calls (like sorry I have windows 95 and it takes time to boot) and eventually they stopped calling at all.

Yeah, plus it's always like the exact same number except changing last 2 or 3 digits. They haven't called me in a while nowadays, luckily, but last month was insane

I started using the Phone by Google app and enabled blocking spam. It worked surprisingly well! Give it a try.

They use reports from other users to proactively block them
