From the web site.........
Scammers have been making phone calls claiming to represent the
National Do Not Call Registry. The calls claim to provide an
opportunity to sign up for the Registry. These calls are not coming
from the Registry or the Federal Trade Commission, and you should not
respond to these calls.
A message from the Department of Redundancy Dept.
We are on the list, and still get 3-5 calls per day. Latest ones show addr
ess and telephone number of our local city government as the calling party,
but it's just another credit card scam. Going to call the sheriff and pol
ice depts about the use of official name and phone number
I used to be a real zealot in sending the AG's office information when
people called me. They usually ended up sending me stuff that said the
people were untraceable VOIP phones. Most of the time I was ratting out
local small businesses and that seemed unfair.
Now, I only rat the businesses that continue to call me after I ask
them to stop. Although I am considering a policy to turn in every
roofing contractor that calls me after a hail storm.

It certainly used to be a lot more effective than it is today. I get an awful lot of junk calls. Some to my cell phone, as well.
I don't know for sure, but I'd bet that this tailing off in effectiveness is at least to some extent due to lack of enforcement funds. Remember the sequester?
I had a call several weeks ago from some local home improvement company
- "Have you ever thought about improving your home". My response "have
you ever thought about the fact that I'm on the not call list?". He
claimed that the list of numbers they bought were supposed to have been
cleaned to remove the DNC numbers. HA - get your money back! I do have
to say though that I haven't gotten a call from that particular company

Is his statement incorrect or are you just a self-appointed usenet nitpicker? "
Oh so you know about 'None' too? Use the search skills I'm sure you have, and find ANY IP addresses connected to him/her, and REPORT them to the authorities.
This prick follows me all over usenet deriding everything I post.
