    When I get a call the caller ID tells me it's a fake number, I always answer, "Detective Johnson, Dallas County sheriff's office."

    Pretend to be a poltergeist. Record a scene from The Omen or The Exorcist and play it down the phone.

    Simple. I don't answer calls from numbers I don't recognize. If the call is legitimate, the caller can leave a VM

    Hanging up is the easiest.

    I just don't answer any incoming call I don't recognize. They can leave a voicemail message if it's important.

    I actually used to enjoy getting these calls, as I'd just sit there saying really lewd, nasty things until they'd hang up.  But now that it's robots doing the calling, I just don't answer when I don't recognize the caller id.
