Pocket Ninja: It's clear that the No Call List is not stopping actual criminals from continuing to use the phone to call their victims. Therefore, the only reasonable conclusion is that the No Call List only unfairly punishes law-abiding citizens who want to use their phones -- in effect, limiting their right to free speech, which is guaranteed by the First Amendment. We must do away with this freedom-destroying list and restore the rights of honest, upstanding citizens to call whomever they want, whenever they want, and instead of enacting laws that fail to target the real offenders, we need to increase our use of existing technologies -- caller ID, *69, etc. -- to ensure that criminals are caught. The only real defense against a criminal with a phone is a law-abiding citizen with a better phone. Let's pass laws together that get those better phones into the hands of our populace.
BigBooper: It can't be a scam, the nice young lady from card services said she had good news about my credit card rates! How can that be a scam!
jayhawk88: Hey guys, I heard that scam artists want my money and the no call list is not stopping them.
jayhawk88: Hey guys, I heard that scam artists want my money and the no call list is not stopping them. Can anyone confirm?
KittyGlitterSparkles: If you give me your credit card number, I can make all the posts about gun control go away.
Obbi: Pocket Ninja coming in with the strong Boobies! Well done, sir.
Missicat: Ok....are there really people dumb enough to fall for this?

Sybarite: Oh, it's not a swindle. What you do is, see, you give them all your credit card numbers, and if one of them is lucky, they send you a prize.
Lassivern: adding your telephone numbers to it only lasts for 2 years. Then, you have to re-add them
liam76: Can anyone who knows more about how telephone systems operate explain how these companies can't be shut down faster?
serial_crusher: I wouldn't be opposed to background checks before allowing people to make phone calls.
Don't see Do Not List as illegal. I pay the phone so it's private and thus don't give a sh*t about someone spouting off "freedom of speech". There's always snail mail and the post office would appreciate the business.
Kim Jong-Un received a spam call once..just once.
Felgraf: That's OK! I've been told for certain that harassment is 'not a thing', so the Do Not Call list is CLEARLY illegal.According to this crazyperson, anyways.
The My Little Pony Killer: liam76: Can anyone who knows more about how telephone systems operate explain how these companies can't be shut down faster?A lot of these dickholes aren't even in the country.
Moonfisher: They have tried, twice now, to scam my husband's grandfather, who is 88 but luckily keen enough not to give out his information over the phone. He called me in a panic last month that my husband was in trouble because he had been gambling and needed money wired to him. "No, grandpa, he's right here next to me sleeping. Listen to his snores..." A few months earlier, someone called pretending to be my brother in law and asking for bail money. Grandpa is very cognizant for his age, and even he had to make sure it really was a scam. I'm sure lots of old people fall for these calls. It makes me feel very stabby.
