FTC shuts down four major robocall operations

The call centers were responsible for billions of calls per year

The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced today that it shut down four separate robocall operations responsible for placing billions of illegal robocalls. The four organizations responsible for the calls agreed to settlements with the agency. Under those agreements, the companies will no longer be able to make robocalls or use automatic dialers to place calls, effectively barring them from the telemarketing business.

And yet, my incoming garbage calls continue to increase.

4 down and 500,000 to go. Every damn day my phone rings at the same times, always from different local numbers, and it's always some robocall telemarketer. There is hardly a point of having a phone any longer; real people send text messages only.

I got 7 calls from my own phone number yesterday, and they're at it again today. If I was on the jury I could never vote to convict anyone charged with shooting these people.

If we passed a law requiring phone service providers to block all incoming calls from Asia,80% of that crap would vanish.
Then make it a felony to manufacture, sell or possess a robocall machine or number spoofing machine and another 19% would go away.
But Congress has never been serious about the DNC list, because phone solicitation is one leg of their fund raising.
FWIW, I tell the legal solicitors, real person or robocall initiated, that I will NEVER give a dime to an unsolicited caller's organization.
