Block unanswered calls

I have recently been receiving many 'international calls' and when answered they hang up with no message. I have been told that these are computer dialling robots that generate random phone numbers and if answered pass the number on as a genuine number to suspicious gangs! I already use Call Protect but this only allows you to divert answered calls, so, is it possible to enter numbers into the system without answering them first?
