This is an oddball topic but I am never surprised at the knowledge bank here.
I'm having problems with RoboCalls. I have one good phone number that these scammers use. I call about every 7 seconds and tie up their answering machine. Does anyone know how to computerize this process?
Thanks in advance.
Not sure if I would encourage anyone to do that and if I even knew how to do something like that, I would not share it.
Good luck. I would suggest put call block on it. If you have internet phone, you may have options to block it better.
This is the Student Load Scam. Do a Google search and see what comes up.
My smart(er than me) phone tells me of suspected scammers or spammers. I usually don't answer numbers I don't know unless I'm expecting a call. Once I verify they're a waste of my time I block the number but they just call from different numbers.
Portfolio recovery is trying to collect on a debt 10-15 years old. They call from different numbers and different states unless they're spoofing numbers. They even told me it was uncollectable and cannot go on my credit. Every once in a while when I'm in the mood I talk to them. I tell them I already offered a settlement which was less than they wanted and better than nothing but they got greedy so now they have nothing. After talking to them a while and wishing them good luck they hang up on me.
We all do things that brings us some joy in our lives. Good luck on your quest.

If you want to cut back on the number of telemarketing calls you get, download PhoneTrayFree and install it on a PC with a modem, or get a USB modem.
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]The software has been replaced with a paid version, but this 8 year old, discontinued version works well. It intercepts your calls and blocks those you don't want. The caller automatically gets a message (your choosing) and you get peace and quiet. The only downside is you need to leave your PC running, in order for it to work.
Edit: You can enter 555-101-???? to block all calls from the 101 exchange in the 555 area code. Or enter 555-???-???? to block all calls from the 555 area code. Or enter a Caller ID with no number, to block all calls with a matching Caller ID, regardless of what number they use.

Not a scam, legit company, great product. Mine quit last year. Called them and they shipped an advance replacement along with a return authorization for the broken one.
Never had that warning in the years I’ve done business with them. I’ve bought 3 of their blockers. One for me and one each for my brother and sister. Won’t do what the op asked though. I misread his request.

It's legal to jam up a robocal. When I had a land line connection I could have my computer call for around 7 rings drop line can call right back If I wasn't paying for the number might let it go for hours before U needed the computer. Illegal is them calling you which opens the door for you to do whatever. If I design a phone I would nave an option to right when the call goes through it will play that "The number you have called is either disconnected or no longer in service" When they get that they will drop the number themself.The calls you get that don't do anything when you answer is ti log the times you are most likely to answer the call and share that information with all the telemarketers. I have my contacts with one ring and anything else a tole you have to try to hear. When I feel like it, I'm retired, I will try to keep the telemarketer talking as long as I can it's almost a game to get high times of their service. There's some crazy Fing with telemarketers you can hear on You Tube, some are classic.I heard that if you pick up the phone a hit streams of 55555 or ##### it will read the number as a Fax line and stop calling. I tried that for a while and it did seem to slow the calls down but they were still there. I have an app on my phone that lets me what type the call is telemarketer and sometimes Spam or Fraud. I will answer the fraud calls talk to them for around 15 minutes and then ask them why does your number come up a fraud? They can make it look like it's fron your city when in fave it's some call house in India. Mostly I just let it ring out but when I bored I'll have some fun with them.
Go to You Tube and watch what they do there, some are guaranteed to give you a laugh.
Just publish the phone number on social media and let folks know it a robo callers number. The masses will take care of the rest.
