Complaint / review text:
There seems to no way to stop robocalls, and there has even been a bit of press about that lately.
Everyone claims there is no way to stop them, but it is quite apparent if the various regulatory agencies could cooperate with the phone companies, they could easily be stopped.
I am not suggesting that the calls be entirely prohibited, but that there be actual enforcement that action would be taken if a company did not
A. Disclose their name and phone number when asked.
B. Stop calling anyone who requested it.
C. Not call people on the do-not-call list.
There are also many other regulations about robocalls, but no one is following them, and no one is enforcing them, either.
What I can't understand is there is a lot of talk about many things in life that are either hardly annoying or that nothing can be done about, but no one like robocalls, and yet no one will even work on a solution, even though most of the companies doing robocalls are scams, or related to scams, because no legitimate company would hang up when simply asked what is their company name or phone number, but if you press a number during a robocall, to speak to an agent, the agent will answer yet immediately hang up if asked any specific question about their company.
This is the sad part of our society today, and has been discussed previously: things that hurt or impact a large part of our society, but which cause relatively small pain or inconvenience to each person, are never addressed, in most cases, because there is no large lobby to actually try to stop or prevent the problem. Problems that cause a large pain to a small number of people are much more likely to be addressed, since the individuals are more motivated to act if they are profoundly affected.
