Look thru that 800notes site, you will see comments of people filing complaints all over the place, and yet the calls keep coming. You can actually find press releases of actions taken. They are few and far between, and a wrist-slap is all they get. Pretty sure they shrug it off, start up the calls again, and rip off more people. There is apparently a huge ROI, and a few $10,000 fines (some were waived!) ain't gonna stop 'em.
There was an article, (don;t have time to find a link now), that said there was something like 32,000 complaints filed against a single number. The FCC (FTC?) did NOTHING, until a Congressman got a call during a meeting. Then he pulled some strings...
They've got top men working on it..... top men.
