When a telemarketer calls you, you sometimes hear a click before they start talking. As soon as you hear this click, start punching the # sign on your phone. This not only scrambles your number with them, it knocks it off their list so they don't call you again!
Register at this website to be put on the national "DO NOT CALL LIST". It is free and really works, no more telemarkers can call you. I registered myself, my daughter and my mother's number and the results have been wonderful.
