You pay too much for caller id, you have registered with the Do Not Call Registry but, if you are like me, you still get unwanted and illegal calls from survey groups and telemarketers. I won’t answer my home phone if any “Out of Area” or non-local number I don’t recognize appears. My assumption is that if it is something important, they will leave a message.
Still, the interruption is annoying. Yesterday and Friday I received 5 calls from 212 448- 5501 and 801 623-4623. All of the calls were in the evening, and the numbers displayed ID unavailable. Thanks to whocalled.us, I was able to learn more about both callers and fight back.
Since its inception, users have logged 83,000 calls with whocalledus. It is very easy to do, and a webform lets you file a complaint with the FTC if you are on the Do Not Call list. The next time you get tele-disturbed, visit whocalled.us.
4/9 update: 800notes is a similarly valuable service
