Robocalls are a growing problem. If only we could make the FCC care a little bit more about fixing it.

thank God the Finnish legal definition of domestic peace harassment covers all unwanted contact that keeps taking place after you have told them not to contact you again (punishable by a fine or up to two years imprisonment)

There's similarities with exchange of personal data in facebook, where people reveal a great deal of information about themselves, like fotos of their sons, house, car, dog, family events, from to birthdays to marriages, social parties, parts of their lives, and vital /private info, even online, opening like that easy ways to strangers to take advantage and the possibility of criminal acts, like blackmail, kidnapping, stealing of private information that must be confidential. But they post fotos from their sons, their school, etc... People are very careless with those kind of information. Please take more care about those private data.

I routinely get calls about my credit card payments being late, my identity being stolen, commiting IRS fraud by not filing my taxes, and my car being repossessed. I don't have a credit card, I filed my taxes, and I don't even have a license let alone a car.

Real simple solution here for everything other than a scammer making it look like the call is coming from someone you actually know; don't pick up if you don't recognize the number. If it's important or it's someone you know and they are calling from a new number, they can leave a message and you can get back to them later.

The best answers today, and probably for quite a while, are apps for your smart phones and a device that works like an app for your home phone no matter what the government does.

I got one once that was some lady saying i am being sued. She then said I have a debt at a bank I have never used and someone is showing up tomorrow at my house with court papers. I told her I’ve never used that bank and she started yelling threats. People will try anything these days I swear.

ajit's mommy and daddy probably operate some of those indian phone scam centers, so we're probably fucked.

I always know when I’m getting a robocall because I’ve moved multiple times and have kept the same number, so if its an area code that’s actually from where I live, its legit, but if it’s not, I know it’s fake.
