    Keep in mind that telemarketers and scammers have been spooking their phone number on the Caller ID. Meaning that they may be calling from 201-394-4##5, but your Caller ID shows up as 330-238-2##4. So when you robocall 330-238-2##4, you are not bothering the scammer, but some poor smuck, who didn't do anything.

    Just saying.

    They even use local numbers now. I had some missed calls on my phone. I call them back. And the person did not dial me. Anymore if no message was left i just delete.

    This is the Student Load Scam. Do a Google search and see what comes up.
    What you are doing is identifying your phone number as an active number interested in their products, every 7 seconds.

    The way to handle a robocall is to not answer (or they will sell you as a "working" number") and let it go to voicemail in case it's not a robocall.

    Block the number if they don't leave a message.

    Register with Do Not Call.

    Contact your phone service and ask them to block robocalls.

    Googling them takes more time than ignoring them.

    My advice doesn't apply if this is your new hobby.

    If you read the last paragraph the trouble is with the certificate not the site. “Digitone.com” and “[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] are the same place on the internet but not exactly the same thing semantically.

    I left or I evacuated the site, depending on semantics.

    Sorry to be slow in responding. I just use a simple flip phone. Gave up my land line long ago.

    I understand about the risks of calling the scammer back. As pointed out, THEY started it. ;)

    Day before yesterday, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM (their busy time) I called every 0:07 seconds into their one line that works. I could hear the circuit close, the recording start to play back and at the three second mark the voice would kick in and I would cut the call. Then the cycle would start again. They have a 6 phone line rotating answering machine. How do I know? Because the seventh call would take 0:06 seconds longer to connect. This occurred almost every call cycle. Wash, rinse, repeat. I just watched a movie and drank coffee.

    I will see if the truce holds but I've not had a call since. :)

    Thank you all for the ideas and comments.
