Received a call last night from a "good friend"... No name ... I said I didn't have any friends and hung up... Perfect English...

Me too.... except since I answer phone with "bueno",  caller  answered me in perfect Spanish and started with the same "don't you recognize my voice?" etc. stuff.  Must be the season.........

I have reached the point that I no longer answer the phone if I don't recognize the number.  If someone really needs to be in touch, they will leave a message.

I do the same, a good practice.

I have one corded phone in the house with no caller ID so I tend to answer if I am in the same room,  just in case.  All others I do not answer if the number is not familiar.  This was the first one of these scam calls for several months so yes, maybe tis the season.
