These assholes call repeatedly under a different number each time. I would assume their strategy is to defeat number blocking technologies. In fact, the numbers are most likely generated by the same business entity that sells call blocking to its residential customers. Telecom companies are a black hole when it comes to business ethics. As for the do-not-call list, its useless. We get as many calls now as before they started it. Direct marketing has a powerful lobby. We, as mere citizens, have no such organized representation in Washington, so we're screwed.
