    I have been receiving a phone call a day for about a year with my caller ID saying they are from various states. Their pitch is that they can lower my credit card rate as it relates the federal stimulus. If you answer, they request credit information and as soon as you ask any question they hang up but the calls keep coming. It is extremely annoying. Anyway to stop them?
