Everybody call 208-254-0223 and not buy anything. Give it a huge war respon
se, just no money. Make it so it has to change the damn phone number !

Maybe that's how to fight spam, spam them back !

It's like using up the time of telemarketers and not buying anything. They  
lose money. Some of them get the message. For those that don't there is the
 DO NOT CALL list.  

I need to get another email address just for that, open to everyone. Let th
em spam and I will be quite loquacious in my responses. I sometimes do good
 with telemarketers, I believe a half hour is pretty good. But I could copy
 and paste a chapter of a book in there and somehow make them think I am go
ing to buy something but I just have to explain a little.  

This guy did it really well :

Hmm I use google groups and just reported them all as spam.
Best to just ignore, IMO

It's pretty easy to circumvent the caller ID/Do Not Call list. Lots of  
telemarketing/phone scam hustles don't even originate within the US,  
e.g. Eastern European crime syndicate buys a zero-day exploit for the OS  
of choice on the black market for $50k, uses it to write a trojan horse  
that's uploaded onto the Internet and eventually finds its way onto  
various unpatched corporate PBX machines around the world, these  
machines then become part of a botnet used to mutiple-hop spam calls all  
around the globe until they reach the US where they can be routed to  
VoIP exit points in the geographic location of the target with spoofed  
Caller ID info, make it look like the call is coming from any number you  
want.

You don't really need much skill to write the virus/trojan horse either
I'm pretty sure there are semi-automated software tools (also available  
on the black market for a price) where it's more-or-less plug and play,  
drag and drop your purchased exploit/rootkit code payloads of choice and  
it'll give them a try until it finds the one that works.

I often receive spam calls on my cell phone (lower your credit card  
interest rate today!) that are just a few digits off  from my own  
number, I'm pretty sure I've received spam calls that caller ID to my  
own cell number at some point which is kinda amusing

(1) Set rollover to voicemail to 10 rings

(2) Add scammer's number to "contacts" list

(3) Set ring type to "no ring"

(4) For new incoming call, unrecognized name, just hit "quiet".  Legit
callers will leave a voice mail.  No voicemail?  Add number to "no
ring" contacts list.  I have 108 so far... only get a new hit maybe
once/twice a week.
