There is very little more abhorrent than telephone spam! Email spam is bad enough, but at least it doesn't interrupt your days at unexpected moments. Most of it ends up quietly in your spam folder. The few that get through are pretty obvious. But telephone spam is an intrusion into your home. It would be like someone just walking in your front door unannounced and starting a conversation with you, or a sales pitch or a swindle.
I always keep all of our numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry. And for most years, this has worked amazingly well. But as of late, with the advent of automatic dialers and recorded messages that are interactive, the phone, some days, seems to ring off the wall!
I go to many websites and report the numbers. We have got to where we don't even answer a call from outside our area code. We do not interact with these intruders.
The most frequent I have blocked with my carrier, but still, the number that can be blocked is so short and the quantity of numbers they can generate are so many!
Our house phone was on the blink for a couple of days due to recent bad weather. Wonderful! Loved it!
Have you registered your phones? Do you think telephone spam should be aggressively sought out and stopped?
