Are you suddenly receiving more unsolicited telephone calls?


I am. Some are from people claiming to represent polling outfits of which I never have heard, others nonprofits asking for money, still more from campaigns and political party headquarters. The calls are up to half a dozen a day, and the number seems to be rising. It's driving me crazy. What are you experiencing?

    There should a class action suit here for some sharp lawyer. After all, we pay for telephone services, and taking our property for their use without compensating us for it ought to make telemarketers liable for damages.

    Many of them here in the US stem from this hotly contested federal election. I also am getting a steep rise in the number of calls of other sorts, too, not all of them from nonprofits, and my numbers are in the "do not call" registry.

    They're getting bolder, at any rate. I hear that the most flagrant ones are based overseas where State attorneys general can't get to them, and they use false caller IDs to conceal their locations. There ought to be a technical solution for that.

    Oh, yes, campaign seasons are the worst, aren't they? Not just for intrusive, unwanted telephone calls, but in every other way the &^%$ pols use to bombard us with demands for money, push polls, and sales pitches.
