Hi 39° | Lo 27°

Letter: Leave us alone already!

We did not ask but guess some would welcome a phone call of reassurance that there is “nothing wrong with their credit card blab, blab blab. . . .”

We recently received such a call for the third time in a week, along with other annoying and unsolicited calls. Whatever happened to the “Do Not Call” list? Is there somewhere we can reenlist?

he Do Not Call List worked for me for about 3 months. It seemed they stopped calling for 3 months, Then started calling again. Now I have Caller ID. If I get a call from 1800 or a town I never heard of I pick up the phone and hang it up. I also stopped giving to charities that sold my number. By that I mean, if I give to the Heart Association in NH, and then 3 weeks later I get a call for the heart association in California, I know my number was sold. The heart association does not do that. But many charities do.

I think the problem is these solicitors/scammers are willing to take the chance nobody can figure out who, and from where, these calls are being made. They don't give a damn about the laws (a common theme, huh?)
