I got the same call from these guys. As soon as he said who he was and why he was calling , I told him that if he ever called me again I would have the cops on his ass so fast. Haven’t heard back from them. Hmmmm

I am actually thinking the machinery used to place the calls keep a watch out for mention of the words "police", "cops", and the like, and if it detects those words, it will automatically hang up, and likely never call you again, knowing what to expect in the future.

Maybe another tactic to deter such calls is tell them you are a police officer (even though you're really not one). That will make the scammer hang up and likely block your number, as they know what to expect in the future.
