A few weeks ago, we posted an update on H.R. 721 (the Spam Calls Task Force Act) and its intent to curb what many consider to be one of the biggest annoyances many Americans face these days. Surprise, surprise…the deluge of robo calls and spam calls is still with us and, despite pronouncements from government agencies about the potential for penalties, the problem appears to have only gotten worse!

So, despite the intent of legislators, it looks like we’ll need to deal with the robo call/spam call issue a while longer, until and unless substantial penalties are routinely assessed against the guilty parties. In the meantime, though, it’s interesting to learn more about this unethical (and hopefully soon-to-be illegal) practice. To aid in this learning process, our friends at Comparitech, a pro-consumer website providing information, tools, and comparisons to help consumers research and compare tech services, have shared a research paper with us titled “How Many Americans Submitted Complaints Against Robocalls? Analysis of the FTC’s Do Not Call Registry.”

Stay tuned to our “News and Interesting Information” for more updates on this aggravating problem!
