} ''Can someone tell me why the DNC is not being enforced?''
The following URL links to the FTC FAQ page which the DNC site nearly begged everyone to read before you registered your numbers. See item 38. The language is quite plain: ''the FTC does not resolve individual consumer problems'' .... nor can you expect it to.
Q&A: The National Do Not Call Registry
The absence of enforcement is a popular myth. A mass of complaints has helped the FTC choke off several credit reprice scammers in the past two years. If you hope for more prompt human assistance, file complaints with the FTC and attorneys general. Individual action through a TCPA lawsuit would be a strong suggestion, if anyone manages to corner one of these scammers long enough.

typo in last previous comment - "This is soliciting" should have been "this is not soliciting" (so aggravated I did not proof read as I should have)
The call woke me from a nap. The recording was for lower interest and to press 1 to talk to an operator but gave no option to stop calls so I pressed 1 and waited for an operator to come online. Because so many hang up on me when I tell them I am on DNC, I immediately told him I want the calls stopped as of now and I am on the DNC list. He politely asked if I knew the nature of the call, I repeated I want off their call list to which he responded again, did I know the nature of the call. I said it was telephone solicitation to which he politely responded "oh no ma'am, this is soliciting" and hung up on me! I am so sick of paying MY phone bill for these telephone solicitors to keep interrupting me in MY home and calling time after time, either leaving no messages or these recordings which some give an opt out option and others do not! When I looked up this number it also said it was District of Columbia of which many calls on my caller I. D. have that name listed but never leave messages. Can someone tell me why the DNC is not being enforced?? I spend a lot of time filing complaints on their site from all the calls I get and never hear anything back!
