    Sorry, I'm not stupid enough to fall for scams.

    I don't think you can classify it as stupidity for "falling for" this. This is a practice that I always used with one additional step thrown in. If I didn't have a number saved, I wouldn't answer, would search the number if able to at the time, and then call back.

    I'm not one of those people that will answer any phone call but at the same time I recognize people not saved in my phone may call me and potentially still be important.

    I was only speaking for myself. :)

    What practice? At first I thought you meant you scammed people, too, but that's not it. :p

    Hmmmm. Not practice like to get better but practice like applying a concept. In other words, I screen my calls.

    Yeah, I knew the context, I just wasn't sure what you meant in general, so thanks for explaining!

    I don't get it.
    On my landline when I want to call a number where there are high charges against my phone bill per minute,
    than the "operator" lets me know about the charges.
    No such warnings are there with a cell phone?

    You are lucky. Our phone company doesn't warn us.
