<Takes notes >

Although I did have fun with one caller as I played a forgetful old dear, trying to remember the year I took out a mortgage- now was it when the Queen had her silver jubilee, I'm fairly sure it was the year Elspeth had her womans trouble or was that Nora with her bunion, do you know they had to... he eventually hung up!
No patience these young folk

In the US there is a "Do Not Call" registry which in theory prohibits unsolicited sales calls and most particularly recorded messages. A human is supposed to request your permission to listen to a recorded message.

When first enacted the law really cut down on spam calls, but ultimately the law has no teeth and today it is ignored with abandon. We are swamped with such calls.

It is easy to file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission but it really does no good. At the end of the process the confirmation says:

Quote:
Do not call complaints will be entered into a secure online database available to civil and criminal law enforcement agencies. While the FTC does not resolve individual consumer problems, your complaint will help the agency investigate the company, and could lead to law enforcement action.


Basically, they just file the data away. It is rare indeed that anyone is actually fined for violations.

In the UK you can register with the TPS ( telephone preference service )
http://www.tpsonline.org.uk/tps/whatistps.html
but they have no powers over calls that originated outside the UK -as in Mr Hermans case
