You can get paid a lot more than a fiver.

And this one:
Suing Telemarketers | How to Sue a Telemarketer

What works for me is that I have the luxury of simply not answering the phone when I don't know who is calling. I do check my voice mail, and thankfully telemarketers don’t leave voice mail.

After a while their auto dialer finds better numbers to call. I get about two calls per month that I assume are telemarketers. But since I don't answer, for all I know they are just wrong numbers.

With nomorobo.com engaged it only rings once & then is cut off , but they call 4 or more times a day..
bouncing remotely from a fake location on the caller ID of Gillette WY.

So how do you find out who 307 464 3934 really is, to sue them??

Not true in my case. I don't get too many robocalls, but recently a few have left messages. Maybe they don't love you after all.

I get calls from a place calling themselves American Solar at least a few times a month sometimes they barely speak English other times they do but no matter how hard I try like telling them I already have solar they keep calling. I like messing with telemarketers and after a while most stop calling but not these guys, all come thru with a local number which warns me right away lol.
