Make telephone providers responsible for scammer calls
Do not call registry DOES NOT WORK! Require telephone providers to give the consumers the opportunity to keep a list of numbers they do not want put through. When a call is placed and it is on the list, it is automatically disconnected. The scammers are the only ones protected at this time. Upon calling my provider about this problem I am told time and again that there is nothing that can be done. I did sign up for the program with my provider where one must first dial a 1 to get through ... Another joke, my mother was the only one who could not get through.
Stop protecting the scammers and start protecting the consumer (isn't that what you are supposed to be doing?).
I would also note that we (recipients of spammer calls) should be able to look up the numbers and identify the caller "free of charge". The Intelius Company and others like them are preying on the consumer who would like to identify the unwanted callers.... Perhaps they are all related?? (spammers, Intelius, etc...)
