They don't call me about vehicle warentees anymore.
 I stayed on the line to the last guy,
 through all the "does it leak? Always starts?" questions by telling them I had a 2016 town and country.
Telling them early in the call that I had an '84 Rabbit that I do all the work on,
didn't stop the calls, just ended that one.
 There are about 3 people I got passed onto.
  I used a fake voice and Roger Lee for a name.
 I got the big guy John Hall about 3 times and he was pissed to hear my voice,
 finally put me on the DNC list.
 One time a gal threatened to keep calling me.
 "Good I'll waste more of your time".
 Didn't hear from her again.

AT&T now "Caller ID's" possible phony phone calls on my cell phone.  Works great, I cancel the call and then add the number to my Blocked number list.

The 'local' calls really are not local. they have a way of piggybacking on local phone numbers. In fact, it is possible your number has been used to make some of them.
I am still confident of this;
I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Ps 27

blocking the number really does nothing, as they will simply come in on another number, they have near infinite numbers to use, as they are hijacking other peoples numbers.

Yep, I got a call from ME one day.  Since I didn't wanna talk just then,,,,,,,,,,,,,I was too busy,,,,,,,,,,I didn't answer.
Afterwards I thought about it and wisht I'd a answered.  Could have given em a real hard time.


Oh yeah, my nephew, who is a cop in Chicago, runs his phone # through a few places and the last one I know is Paraguay and I answer it.  Sure enough, he's on vacation in Chi town.

I see people posting theirs and other people's phone numbers on this site.
 Bots pick them up.
That's a good way to get on a list of numbers they call.
 Probably should use PMs when sending someone's number.
 
 I picked up a phone call with no one on the other end.
 On an old trackphone that I never use. It never gets calls.
 After that I got a flood of calls, they might just be scooting for valid numbers to add to the call list.
