Spam phone calls

I know it could just be coincidence, but I'm interested in others thoughts on this.
Even though I'm ex-directory and TPS registered, I was still getting spam calls up to a fortnight or so ago. Round about this time, I received a number of calls from a dodgy (to say the least) debt collection agency, so one day I decided to answer the call.I answered in the name of a ficticious company and when they asked for 'Amanda Green', I replied 'she has never worked here'.
Since that call, I haven't had one spam call. Note, I never normally answer calls from numbers I don't recognise, or where my caller display says 'International', 'witheld' or 'unavailable', but that didn't seem to stop them.
Coincidence, or do these morons have a central database that screens out business numbers?
