A simple cheap user controlled method that is proven
I missed the original contest and I did not invent this method, however I have proven it to work for several years.
Here is a solution that I did not invent, but have proven to work, it is very low cost or free and is completely under the local control of the phone owner.
Turn the robo dialers against themselves! To make them stop, record the phone not in service tones at the beginning of your answering machine message. Pause for 3 seconds and then give your message. The tones will tell the robo-dialer that this is not a working number and they delete it. It may take a few weeks for this to work through all the different spammers who are calling.
Real people will hear this and ignore it or be slightly confused, but after a few weeks you can remove the tones. Gradually the robo calls will increase and you can repeat the process. I have used this for several years with good results.
Here is the link describing the details:
