I try two approaches: 1800 401 0118
eighthundred, followed by four hundred and one, followed by four digits, zero plus one hundred and eighteen.
That doesn't mean that YOU can find out the name and address in some other way; that's why I asked the question!
I agree, the "do not call list" regs do not make PRACTICAL sense, but even so, the facts are you cannot report a violation unless the initiating call is not from a human, and yes I agree that has been worked around. Check it out yourself: the Federal Trade Commission's registration number is XXXXX followed by 382 followed by 1222; it is for registration AND filing a complaint. If you try to report, the automation asks some y or n questions and one relates to whether the call is prerecorded or not. If it is you cannot even proceed to give them the violators information. So you can forget it if a human is there when you answer.
You can, however, report the violation to your State Attorney General, and the violator's State Attorney General - BUT you have to have the company name and address.
You can report to the FCC as well but I haven't tried that yet so I have nothing to offer on that subject.
I appreciate your effort.
So, to make this waste of time somewhat valuable, and so reporting offenders can be easy and low in cost in the future, this is my followup question is: "Where and how did you get the company name and address?"
