ANDY'S CONSUMER PAY-OFF: SCREENING YOUR CALLER I-D

* Never answer a call you don't recognize, even if the area code's familiar or the number's a digit or two off of your own number.

* If you do answer, and it's a robo-call, hang up immediately.

* Do not press any buttons if prompted. That could turn your phone service over to the solicitor, who may use it to make international phone calls.

* Never call the number back. If you do -- or even if you answer a robo-call -- you will confirm to the solicitor that yours is a legitimate, working number. The solicitor may sell your number to other telemarketers, and the volume of calls may increase.
