Also, I recently got a call that REALLY threw me off. It came up on my phone as the same areacode as I am in and even the same prefix as you mentioned, but I noticed a "+" in front of the number indicating an international call.

My areacode is 248, the call was from the +24 country code, and was a scam caller. Had I answered it, the caller could have billed me at some outrageous amount of money ($20/minute for example). It literally looked JUST like a call from my area prefix, if it werent for the + at the front.
So just to show you what this looks like, I received another one today.

Notice the cleverly placed + in front of the number? Thats because its from COUNTRY CODE +248. (for reference, my phone number starts with 248-602-XXXX)

Stop answering calls from unknown numbers, the automated system will eventually stop calling.

Never do, they do no stop. Only way is to block them as they come in.

When calls from numbers I don't recognize come in, I don't answer generally. If they don't leave a message on more than two calls, I block them.
