It’ll soon be easier to get the last word when a dreaded Robocaller dials your phone.
Government figures show robocall complaints up about 225 percent since late 2010. The spike raises questions about how well the federal do-not-call list is working. That list bars telemarketers from calling the more than 209 million phone numbers on the registry.
The Federal Communications Commission says complaints about illegal telemarketing calls are up 70% since last year, with most of those complaints are coming from people who are on the national Do Not Call registry.
