Hey guys, how phone spam is common in your countries?

Every day or two I get an automated phone call advertising some shop or claiming I won stuff and asking me to press a button to confirm. Now I heard that if you press a button the hackers can hijack your phone line or something...

Today was a whole new level of spam. An automated message happily said I won some super-multi-radio-toaster-thing and I need to pay just for the shipping... And it actually asked for my credit card number! Via phone! I was furious..!

I wonder if you can track those arses.

EDIT:
Aw, forgot the "Never" option

I don't really see much of that on my phone. Possibly because I don't have a land line, and use only a cell phone. I'd say it's even less frequent than once a week, but that was my vote anyway. Now, at work, we get calls from actual people spamming us to get us to take surveys and stupid crap like that... but they're not automated at all.

I used to get some random phone call about once a week. Then I ditched the land line. Good riddance.

Family home gets a phone call at noonish every day. I like it, cos I always sleep in too long when I'm home and need something to wake me up!

Not having a landline at my University flat is awesome!

The automated ones are only about once a month, though.

We get tons of telemarketers. 1-2 per day. But hardly ever automated scam calls. Then again, some parts of the city seem to, because enough elderly people fell for it to warrant a public service announcement about a year ago.
