Over the past couple years, we only got rob calls on our landline, so when we moved, didn't bother getting a landline. Cellphone connections are now way more reliable, so no need for a back up, "just in case". Then started getting robo calls on the cell. No problem. Doesn't show name, don't answer, they can leave a voicemail, I then block them.But this past week was the icing on the cake. One day, while doing a labor epidural, there was a robo call INTO THE PATIENTS ROOM on the hospital landline. WTF?!?!? The nurse said it was about the 6th time that day. Then, the next day, the same thing happened to the OR phone. Again, WTF?!?!?Things have got to stop. I know there is a bill going through Congress, please write your Congress critter. This has to be a bipartisan issue that all the knuckleheads can get behind.JLC
Again, WTF?!?!?Autodialers don't care. They dial every number in the exchange. And they use a fake caller ID.
Autodialers don't care. They dial every number in the exchange. And they use a fake caller ID.And if they're calling from outside the country, how do you catch and prosecute them?Plus, if it's a big scam anyway (like phony extended auto warranties), breaking a phone law isn't much when they're already breaking a bunch of other laws.
