Spam...and I don't mean Spiced Ham in a can....

I don't know about you...but I get spam calls all the time on my cell phone. I even got one on my landline the other day.  Oh, you may be wondering why I have a landline? It's because if I break or lose or misplace my phone I'll have a way to reach somebody when I'm at home and can order a new phone. And my landline does not ring very often. When I'm at my desk, I can easily reach it, lift it up and slam it down. In my small mind, I'm wondering how the spammers make their money:  -Are they supposed earn their $$$ based how many calls they make? Do they get paid more if they have a 5-minute conversation with each person?  -Do they get paid based on how many folks pick up their phones?  -Do the spammers pay the company, if they don't reach the required 'pick-up-the phone' numbers? SPAM -Do they record us?  -Do they get extra $$$ (rewards) if the not-lucky recipient gets reeled in, hook, line and sinker? -Since many of the phone-owners get the spammer
