starting saturday - i have had 7 mobile calls - none leve a message
3 on sat - all unanswered as i was unavailiable
all different numbers - that i can find no info on - using spam caller websites
now its pissing me off - blocking each number - retro activly - is pointless as none call twice
is there any sensible solution ???
i cannot block " all numbers not in contacts " - for various reasons - so please dont suggest that

I get them several times a day, and have for a while. I've learned to just ignore them. Blocking is pointless because the number is always different. Usually, the area code and prefix are local (and the exact same as mine), but i also get some national, and occasionally an international, one. If I don't know the number, no answer. If someone wants to get a hold of me, they can leave a message or text.
The most recent *scam* left via voicemail is telling me that my SSN has been suspended. Yeah, suspended.

For thos in the US, you can look into an app called robo revenge if you're getting slammed by robo calls.
Supposedly it gives a fake credit card number for tracing purposes and sets the stage so you can sue the robo caller. I believe it's 3,000 dollars per instance. Keep in mind I'm sure it's not that easy to get the money.... However, if it becomes widely used, it may curb robo calling until they find another way to skirt the system.
