Long after signing up for the national DO NOT CALL list, the calls continue. Most of them ring in about dinner time. Often, there is a three second delay before the harassing caller comes on the line. That delay provides me with an opportunity to hang up if I react quickly enough.
There are some legal loopholes that available to those who call. For example, when the law was written, our politicians exempted themselves for DO NOT CALL provisions. I guess they felt that their vote and money gathering messages were something we just had to hear.
There are loopholes used by some businesses. This link describes our growing problem.
We can always file a complaint but there are more callers than I have time to complain about.
Here is another suggestion that just may cause your name and number to be removed from their call list. When the caller asks for you by name, claim to be a care-giver. Tell the caller that the person they are calling is no longer able to conduct personal business.
Those employed to make these calls have a tough and thankless job. I understand that and do wish them every success in finding a better job. Until then, sorry but I am not interested.
