Thanks Dave

As I said in a previous email to the group, I am positive that the
1. scammers are getting the phone number "ligitimatly from autofill on the
internet[ because I see their name coming up.

2.Comcast has an option that I can access in my own voice mail, to block a
number.  The telphone numbers on caller I.D. are always different.  I won't
waste my time any more.

3. My outgoing message now says"

Friends: I'm only check boice mail foe my cell
Telemarketers:  you are being reported to the DO NOT CALL  Registry

4.   I have written the Obama campaign about this.    Their sites now have
a message that they've suspended autofill.
