Question For The Government + The FCC

The overall economic climate may be bad, but the telemarketing market is booming. We are getting several calls a day from scammers selling us credit card relief or auto warranty we don't need.

Luckily, most of the calls are screened by our $12.95/month Verizon Call Intercept service, i.e. we have to pay an extra 13 box a month to get rid of those parasites. Yet, as the economic crisis deepens, the amount of unsolicited calls has increased, even though we are on the Do Not Call Registry, and systematically report such calls to the FCC.

Does anybody care? Do we need to remind those in charge -- and the American public - that this financial meltdown was fueled not only by Wall Street, but also by the average Joes' greedy gullibility? Is anything done to take are of that? And of those scumbags exploiting that very gullibility? Obviously not. Call it the "American Dream." Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.
