The do not call list turned moot about 4 years+ years ago, it became unenforceable and there were also ways around it. I got a phone number from a VOIP supplier for $15/yr and give that out as my phone number. It’s like a spam email address. These are the contact points you give out and you only give out your cell or real email to close friends. That’s the world we live in.
Don't ski the trees, ski the spaces between the trees.
When I get a call from a number I don't know - especially a suspicious looking one - I answer but don't say anything. When you answer a robocall and say something, your phone number gets flagged as a "sucker," resulting in more calls.
