After reading the telemarketing script thread I thought maybe someone could give me some advice on how to stop an unwanted call I keep receiving. The call comes through my caller id as "unknown caller", I don't think anyone is on the line, it just sounds like dead air. Sometimes it's a fax machine. I get at least one call a day from as early as 7:30AM up until 11:00PM. We have been turning off our ringer at night and our answering machine down so we don't get woken up. I hate to do that though in case of an emergency. I have talked with my phone company, they told me how to do anonymous call rejection which isn't working in this case. They are telling me the only other thing I can do is add privacy something-or-other to my line which costs 3.95 a month or trace the calls which cost the same amount and get the police involved. It really makes me mad that I may have to pay extra money to get the calls to stop. I understand I can add the privacy feature for a couple of months and then take it off, but even then, there is no guarantee that will help. I just don't want to spend the money if I don't have to. We have had this number for years and haven't had a problem. We have been on the do not call list for as long as that's been around as well. Does anyone have any suggestions??
