Robo-calls - almost over?

Hold your breath. Count to 10. Will the robo-calls continue for 12-18 more hours? Let's hope not!

Mixed in with robo-calls tonight was a live telemarketing call from what sounded like Global United. Whatever that is. The caller was pleasant and polite - and calling in violation of the Do Not Call law.

Do local companies (if it is local) ever check the Do Not Call List? Do they just figure that the persons called will hang up or get mad or write a Letter to the Editor, but not sic the FCC on them?

As soon as I mentioned the Do Not Call List, the caller apologizes and got right off the line. Perhaps she was acquainted with the financial peril to her employer, if she did not.

Now, if we could only get the political robo-calls included in the off-limits calls. Fat chance.
