When someone calls to sell me security systems or to fish for personal information, I tell them "okay, but first I'm going to need your credit card number because my time is valuable". That usually renders them speechless as it doesn't seem to be on their list of usual responses.

I've given them the silent treatment. There's only caller ID from national numbers so most of these people use international numbers. I do answer when my caller ID says international because I often receive phone calls from relatives, mostly mother, when she's out of the country. Sis also had too many prank calls so now she's chosen to have her number withheld. Most times those I just vet calls via answering service. That can be annoying too. I come home to check my calls and there's a number of automated cold calling. Sometimes if I do answer I just automatically say that
" I'm not interested in signing up for anything or giving out information, goodbye" and hang up.

I have. I just went along with the prank like I was serious.
