I don't understand some of the people that keep complaining about marketing and debt collector calls and robocalls. It just means you don't know the law and don't know how to answer them. With marketing calls, I've always answered the calls and ask them to put me on the do not call list.
Back before robocalls, I took the 2 minutes to get a live person and pretended to not hear them clearly. I ask who the are, then sound confused and ask what company they're calling from. As soon as I have that I tell them I have their information and took notes and ask them to put me on their Do Not Call list. They never call back. The National Do Not Call list is a scam for politicians to get your number and call you. I've never been on that and maybe twice a year I get a new marketing call.
When robocalls started, I tried to listen to the full message for the Do Not Call information at the end. I listen to the message and found that they mostly used 2, at first, then 9, to automatically be put on the do not call list. As soon as I hear the robocall in English, I press 9 and the call hangs up. Even quicker than talking to a real person.
I also had debt collectors call before for different people. I listen and ask them whom they're looking for and tell them to update their information and stop calling. I think they cycle through a half dozen debt collectors before they get fully updated. One year, someone gave out my number as their number, or someone mis-entered a digit and I started getting calls for a little bit, but I put a stop to it immediately. Before robocalls, there may have been a dozen companies that called, but when robocalls started less than a handful of calls was enough to put an end to all unsolicited marketing. I did have to listen to the first few robocalls all the way through to figure out the number to press.
If everyone does what I do, then they will start tracking when you asked to be put on the list and start calling again after a year. The majority of people are too lazy to do the initial work to get peace of mind later, so until I change my number, I won't be hassled by marketing and robocalls. Once you get on someones Do Not Call list, they rarely remove you. It's just extra work for them to track, when they have 10's of millions of people that don't know the law.
Anyone that wants a new law to block them doesn't know the law. The laws exist already to block all these unwanted calls. Make the law work for you. I rarely get any unsolicited robocalls now. On the rare occasion that I do, I follow procedure.. I even moved a few times and got a new number that initially got these calls, but I put a stop to them within a month on any new number I have.
