Has anyone else noticed that back when we just had land lines, not a whole lot of bogus calls were being made? It seems that since the advent of cell phones, the scamming has become part of cell phone usage. I don't recall getting many, if any, scamming/phishing calls when I had my land line. I had an answering machine and if no message was left, I didn't waste time calling back if legit. The "NO CALL" list is a farce too. Everyone I know who signed on has still received bogus calls. We sure do need legislation/protection and the phone companies and the legislatures need to get on a resolution ASAP. I see many web sites to report scammers but don't think they take it any further.
