The June 4 article about the ringless voicemail issue could have been more accurate.
From our experience, the Do-Not-Call lists have become practically useless. We are on every list we could find with every phone number we have, yet we deal with spam calls every day on home phones and cell phones.
We get one or more calls on our home phone every day, as late as 11 p.m. Why would any legitimate company try to annoy the business out of a customer? Why would any legitimate customer want to deal with such a company?
And if it’s spam, hang up. Report the call to someone, except maybe the government. It’s useless when it comes to protecting the people from business.
I have no faith that the current bunch in charge will protect us from ringless voicemail instead of giving the spammers some sort of award for innovation. Pro-business does not always have to mean anti-consumer; government leaders should learn the difference.
I keep a list on my computer of these calls and the companies they come from. It’s my “Do Not Buy” list.
