Telemarketer Tactics
#11
Most tele-terroists use VOIP and a robotic dialer (aka -- a computer.)
With a spoofed C.I.D.

My gripe is: Why should "we" have to put up with this?
The big telecom companies could blacklist these terrorists.

Everyone call forward to the Whitehouse switchboard on Telemarketer Thursday.
202-456-1414.

frankly I have a something a little more Biblical in mind to punish telemarketers.

I just love it when they spoof my own number when they call me. Does that really work?

I enjoy being with a group who like to share their "Hosehead" experiences, to remind me I am not alone.

Yes, they can sent out any CID they select.
If only 1% of phones are answered; then a boiler-room of 10 terrorists telemarketers are enough to cover a robodailer that sprays out all 1000 numbers in an area code prefix combination.

I believe the rational for the carriers not doing anything about the telemarketers is that they want to remain "common carriers" for legal status. As soon as they begin regulating or controlling what content gets through, they can become legally responsible for illegal communications. But, then I am not a lawyer, no do I play one on the internet...

Unfortunately ninety nine percent of telemarketers are giving the other one percent a bad name.
