When state and local governments announced the creation of a do not call list, many people celebrated since they believed that this would put an end to telemarketers once and for all. The truth is that telemarketer calls have actually increased since the creation of these lists. The parties responsible are simply hiding their true identity from the people they call so they won’t get caught breaking the law. There are, however, things you can do to further protect yourself.
You now have the ability to perform a reverse phone number search online using the latest in Internet technology. Simply record the number that has been bothering you and then input it on a reverse phone number tracing website to discover just who is responsible. There are even websites that catalogue everyone’s search so you know just how many times that particular number has been bothering you, and bothering people around the world! This way, the responsible parties can be held accountable.
Massive databases like these don’t get built overnight, however. It takes the concerted effort of people across the nation who want to see telemarketers held accountable for breaking state and federal law. You can do your part by recording every telemarketer call you receive and then reporting it to the right website. It is only with mountains of proof that these companies can be stopped and your phone can finally be at peace.
If you would like to do your part to stop telemarketers once and for all, there are folks out there running wonderful websites dedicated to helping you out. Remember, you have a right to privacy in your home and you don’t have to take the incessant calls from telemarketers that come in around the clock any longer. Fight back with organization, information and the collective roar of the public.
