    I'd have to say that probably MORE than half of the calls I get appear to be scams. I basically don't answer the phone unless it's someone I know. Otherwise, they can leave a message.

    We have this in Belgium; Register to be put on the "Don't-call-me-anymore" list Never want to receive sales calls again? Register free of charge to be put on the "Don't-call-me-anymore" list.

      Yes, I already have my phone number already on the don't-call list! It doesn't help! The US don't-call list is not very effective. It sounds like the one in Belgium is much, much better. Scammers don't go by the law, and I feel like there is too little done here to stop them. I definitely wish there was more that could be done to report them. I've considered typing up a list of numbers that are scams or robo-calls and putting it up online to make a database. But then I heard that some of the scammers make it look like their phone number is something that it isn't really, and I would hate for an innocent number to go up on my database. So in the end, if I get repeated calls from a number that doesn't leave a message, I eventually block that number from my phone.
