To me the Do Not Call List is a joke any money spent on it is a total waste. I have been on the list for many years and average about 3 to 5 unsolicited calls per day.
The gov't should publish data on the problem. First how may illegal telemarketing calls are made daily. Second: how much crime and property loss occurs because of those telemarketers who are just phishing for information.
Finally, the FTC is the wrong organization to enforce the rules.
