Weird...

A lot of calls on my caller ID but no messages.

Coming from Minnesota and Seattle WA.

Telemarketers?

Wonder what I can do about it?

Google the telephone #?

Call the telephone #?

Register on the DNC database?

There's always a way...

I've never used it as I don't want my friends numbers to go to a place
like this.

For sure! I was surprised they are starting to list cell phones in directory
services. Now, you can get unsolicited phone calls anywhere <g>

Only work if they're on a cell phone.

They're probably not cell calls if they're telemarketers.

Call this number from your home or cell phone; 1-888-382-1222, or click the below link to
register on-line. It is the national DO NOT CALL list.

In over 10 years I've had 2 solicitations on my cell phone. Both times
as soon as I asked them "what the hell are you doing on my cell phone?"
they hung up. All I heard was the click. On my home phone I get no
telemarketers now, I guess the DNC register does work.

I have two (or maybe two systems from the same crappy place) that leave
messages almost daily and at random times. Since it's an automated message
("Please call Shithead at 1-we-screw-you") and I won't return the call, the
DNC can't block it. I tried - the number to call back to changes, then
they're calling again.

But overall, the DNC has been great. I'm sure more tele-idiots will find
schemes like the above to get past the rules just long enough to screw
someone, but it is getting harder <g>
