I get 5 to 15 calls a day from India. Sometimes from the same person trying to sell me prescription medication. Most of the time I do not pick up because the numbers are all different and US numbers. About half the time I have to pick up because I also use this number for work. I have asked nicely over the last several years to stop calling and loose my number. Sometimes they hang up, ask for money to stop calling for the day, or every once in a while I get said some very vulgar things to and cussed at.

Of course you can sue them, in India. With our improved worldwide communications there is less cost to building these international telemarketing network and so there are more companies harassing us on a daily basis. There are a number of products you can get to block unwanted calls. Many allow you to specify the blocked numbers, but some allow you to provide the allowed numbers. Look into them.
