Stopped answering all of the calls. Turned off voice mail and answering machine as per the phone co advice.
got call, no message. always screen our calls not because of the half dozen calls I get like this everyday.
Called, coughing in the background. No message.
I got a call from 4233545055. I didn't talk with them. I called the number back, and got what appeared to be a home phone, the guy then quickly hung up. I called back and got a non-specific company name selling Wal-Mart stuff.
I informed them that I am on the DoNotCall list.
ID said "Star K"
No answer from other line. Hung up.
