Dear Telemarketer/Bill Collector/Surveyer/Other...
Your calls are ignored for the following reasons:
1)You don't leave a message. If you don't leave a message, then by definition you are a prank caller. Why would I worry about speaking to you?
2)You leave an incomplete message. "This is an attempt to collect a debt. Please call number @#$%^." Uh-huh. If you don't bother to say who you're calling, why should I worry? Obviously, it's not me, right?
3)You have the wrong number BUT you are a machine so it's impossible for me to tell you it's a wrong number. I wonder how many times your machine will call before it gives up?
4)Your message begins "If you would like to hear this message in Spanish, press one..." Nope. I don't want to hear it in Spanish so I hang up.
5)Your message begins "--24593u". Who knows what the rest of the message was?
6)If you really want me to answer the phone, then a real person should make the call. When they do, I answer the phone, inform them they've called the wrong number, and after that they don't call again.
7)How do I know the rest are wrong numbers? I don't owe anybody any amount of money anywhere.
