Hello Chris.

I'm not sure it's doable. But if it's advertising companies calling, have you heard about the national do not call list?

I put 1 of my cell numbers on the Nat'l Do Not Call List, it's still getting TONS of telemarketing and survey calls.  My other cell phone number, I didn't put it on the list, and I NEVER get unsolicited calls.  I have no faith in the DNC list, and I'm sure I read somewhere that the list is available to be purchased by anyone.

I don't think that is the case, Jru. We received tons of marketing calls too but they all but stopped when we added our number to the national DNC list. Even the cruises, credit card offers and Florida shares have stopped and those were not even Canadian. We added ourselves to the list a few years ago and had hardly any spam calls since.

I added my primary cell phone number to the list, and the spam calls have increased.

I entered our home phone number on the DNC list years ago and am still plagued with calls about reducing the interest on my credit card, offers for a free cruise, security systems for the house, etc.  Don't think it works at all well.

Take their name, their company and then make a complaint! They'll be hit with a hefty fine.
