"Call Back Code" to report Do Not Call violations

A major problem with the current Do Not Call list is that reporting an offending call is more inconvenient and time consuming than the offending call.

A proposal: Have phone service providers offer this feature - if you get a robo-call or other call that violates the Do Not Call List, dial a code similar to a call back code that captures your phone number, the calling phone number, and the date and time. The code should be standardized across all phone companies to make it easy to remember and use. Phone companies would compile these records and send them to the FTC.

This would make reporting far more complete and make it much easier to identify flagrant offenders.
