We've all been there, and most of us are sick of it--call after call from people you don't know, trying to sell you things that you don't want. There were 5.1 billion robocalls made in November (1,963 per second).
I don't know about you, but for my family, signing up for the National Do Not Call Registry did not give us the relief from telemarketers that we'd hoped for. As a matter of fact, we've barely noticed a drop-off in call volume at all. And we've been on the Do Not Call list for over 10 years.
