Re: Need a national Database
Most spam callers spoof their phone number. 

Most use a different number for each call.

All you would be doing is building a database of victims.

Internal attacks
Internal attacks are more critical and impactful then external attacks most of the time. As they would have more resources and execute in a right way.

It is a good idea if it works. Finding these types of solutions is better than telling people not to answer.

Extensive contact list
I would doubt that extensive contact list will help at all. It would help hackers more than you I would say.

Do not reveal
Do not reveal so much too soon is a good suggestion I think. Just let them tell you who they are and what they want.

Do not answer
This suggestion does not work for most of the time, I have phone so I can answer when I get a call, this is like we do not know what to do so you should not answer the call. It is telecom providers responsibility to avoid it, they sell your data that is why you get calls.
