Dan has been getting a ton of telemarketing and robocalls lately. Is there a service that will filter them out so he doesn't have to deal with it? Leo says that Google Voice has great call screening and blocking utilities -- and it's free. Leo also says there's a new service called the Jolly Roger Telephone Company that has fun with telemarketers on your behalf.
Other options for screening calls include:
- Asterisk - This is a free, open-source option.
- Anveo - This a paid service that allows you to customize how calls are handled.
Leo says that unethical telemarketers don't care about the DoNotCall list and often they are outside the country, which isn't required to obey that law. And they spoof the call anyway. Leo says Google Voice is the way to go.
