Letter: Do do not call list still apply?

Published 12:00 am Thursday, September 22, 2016

Does the federal do not call list not apply to your phone anymore?

Today I got six phone calls – four computer generated and two actually people on the line. I just hung up on the computer calls, but I told the “real” people that our phone was on the Federal Do Not Call list and why were they calling me? Both said “Sorry” and hung up.

I thought that by signing up for the federal do not call that I wouldn’t get all these unwanted calls, but evidently it doesn’t mean anything. What can I do to stop all these calls especially with an election coming up when there will be a lot of calls that I don’t want?

I used to tell people to mail me any information they want me to know, but no one ever does.
