I normally just hang up and blacklist the number but in two cases I actually listened to the message. At the end they say to press a number to speak to someone now or to hit another number to end phone calls from them.
Ok, I never unsubscribe to the same type of emails on purpose because it certainly can lead to more problems.
Does anyone know if the phone 'cancel' works if I would push that button or am I going to just verify that I did listen to the message?
1. In most cases, these people are already violating the "do-not-call" list.
2. Could pressing "1" be interpreted as you now have a business relationship? (do-not-call exempt?)
3. You just let them know you listened to their message. That makes you a valuable number to sell!
So even if they don't call you again (they'll probably have changed company names in a week or two anyway), they'll sell your # to someone who will. Block and move on.
