Not sure if anyone else gets a lot of scam calls, but I do. I usually answer them to listen for a do not call list option, but I have also started rickrolling the robots.

The automated voice starts trying to get, like, information on my car insurance, and Rick Astley's gentle timbre croons into the microphone, "We're no strangers to looove."

Honestly, the span between when the automated voice stops speaking--disturbed by Mr. Astley--to when they hang up is precious time I will always treasure.

Knowing these calls are often monitored or checked is just the best gift. The rick that keeps on rolling. I highly recommend it.

I also seem to be getting fewer scam calls, period LOL.
