Help-- Now receiveing increasing number of robocalls

In January the number of robocalls I received dropped drastically. When Rachel from Cardholder Services was finally caught, it appeared that several of the other robocallers slowed down. I was only receiving about 3 calls per week.
Starting this week I have been receiving 3 to 5 robocalls per day offering to reduce my mortgage cost, offering to reduce my electric bill, offering home alarm systems, offering life alert system...

    It doesn't matter how many Rachels are caught or prosecuted. The problem will not be solved by legal means or by policies & procedures (i.e. Terms & conditions, Eula, Seal of Approval, quick unsubscribe, etc). It will only be solved when the economics of untargeted, illegal and harrassing contact tips in favor of the recipient. Change the incentives and you will change behavior.

    For that reason, I feel that the best solution presented to the FTC Robocall Challenge is the "Economic Risk Mechanism" by Phil R. Check it out (search term: "economic"). Look at the updated figures on the author's web site. The method presents unrecognized callers with an inescapable risk that costs desired callers nothing (even for unrecognized callers). And yet it changes behavior of callers whose contact is unlikely to please the recipient.

    Think about it...Even though an illegal marketer can call as easily as they do now, they will choose not to, because any call that doesn't sit well with the recipient will cost them dearly.

    I am not familiar with this method, but note that it requires action and time from the victim of the robocaller. Our StopRoboCalls service which provides a technical solution that makes it impossible for a illegal robocalls to get through and requires nothing from subscribers.

    The "Banksters" are in the middle of a country jacking ! Unless the source of the technology is traced by registered numbers and tracked by the manufacturer to insure legal uses, Americans will continue to be ripped off by these international Bankster Cartels. Robo call me and all you'll get is feedback ! Any Call Can Be Traced From Any Phone, if the ATT, FTC, people were seriously wanting the Robo Calls stopped, NSA or any of the Alphabet Soup groups would stop this form of Domestic Economic Terrorism, Somewhere these people are stashing their loot ! Caymans ? Swiss Banks etc etc ! It just may be the "them" that's behind the Robo Callers ! Rachel From Cardholder Services does exist and she's getting very wealthy with OUR money, try holding the receiver next to an answering machine, on my line it makes very ear piercing feedback, make sure the volume is turned all the way up ! Have Fun and don't give out your SS#, and CC#'s to anyone over the internet, or phone lines, We Americans are in the middle of a "Country Jacking" Consumers Beware ! !

    Check out Prologue's proposed solution which filters out Robocalls, An Easy to Implement Solution that Meets All FTC Requirements. The actual solution can be even smarter, but this one meets all of the requirements.
