I have received a phone call every day this week from the same telemarketer number.

These robocalls seem to come in waves where I won't get any for months and then I get flooded with them. Have you been getting more calls from unknown numbers lately?

The Idaho Statesman has some pretty good suggestions on how to deal with these calls, but how do you deal with them? Do you even ever answer calls from unknown numbers? I think I'm lucky that my phone will warn me of numbers that are known to be spam calls. There is actually a national Do Not Call Registry that you can add your phone number to and then if do receive a telemarketer call you can report them and they could be fined.

You can also download apps like RoboKiller, TrueCaller, and YouMail that will help block telemarketer spam calls.
