Try this plan of attack to stop robocalls and exact revenge:

ROUND 1: Register on the “Do Not Call” List
It won’t help much, but only takes 30 seconds, so why not? It’s free to register at donotcall.gov

ROUND 2: Activate your service provider’s free protection

AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon offer free services that monitor network activity and crowdsourced reports to block suspected fraudulent calls.

AT&T:     Download an app called AT&T Call Protect
Verizon:    Download an app called Verizon Call Filter
T-Mobile:    Congrats, most T-Mobile customers already have the company’s Scam ID and Scam Block service turned on, with no need to download an additional app.

ROUND 3: Get a robocall-blocking app

Check out YouMail, Nomorobo, RoboKiller and Truecaller.

ROUND 4: Get revenge

The $4-per-month RoboKiller takes over and fingerprints your voice mails
but adds a clever twist: “answer bots.” They’re voice-mail messages that try
to keep robots and human telemarketers on the line listening to nonsense.
