Plus they now have a device that can fool you if you use caller ID to screen calls that can have your caller ID show your spouses, bank, school, or anybody you know phone number.
*Update Sept 22, 2009 330-433-5839 robocall today
***Update Aug. 27, 2009 go to http://barrytyred3.blogspot.com/2009/08/telemarketing-robocalls-illegal.html for a new FTC regulation making robocalling illegal...for the most part. But there is a technology that lets them "spoof" most any number. The latest are calls from Washington D.C. 202-495-7148, 202-461-3457
The national Do Not Call site will accept cell phone numbers also
I understand the FTC has filed a suit against one of these outfits that does the car warranty calls but it doesn't seem to slow them down or stop the others. The latest one using area code 214 and the number of 221-9430 called me today. Like all the others I have posted in here it leads to a car warranty robo-call. I wonder how they do this calling all over the country from a non-800 number? Don't expect me to find out but I know they are doing it. I also read that these outfits are ignoring the do not call lists too. I guess our only resource is to call our senators and representatives.
There is a lot more below the picture but here is an edit adding a link to information, with names, about the people behind these irritating calls. Click this XXX
Edit May 13, 2009 to add that it appears the do not call list works with the main outfit violating this regulation. It has pissed off a Senator and at last word this morning it looks like the FTC will be looking into the main oufit behind these Robocalls. Here is a most interesting link to a site dealing with nothing but this stuff:
866-567-1751, 910-743-2274, 866-520-4551, 877-249-4007, 847-557-1100, 952-582-6081 - When I search the net for these numbers I find information that the origin of most of them is from an outfit called GC Services that does calls for Capital One which is a credit card company. I do not have one of their cards nor am I in debt. Actually I'm one of those people that credit card outfits hate because they do not make any money from me directly because I pay my cards off in full each month.
Regarding 847-557-1100 research on it turned up this outfit: W. Arrow-Financial.com 599 W. Touhy Ave, Niles, Illinois 60714 with a FAX number of 847-647-1215. They called my cell phone and my wife's cell phone a few time in July and August of 2008.
Searched 952-582-6081 and it looks like it belongs to a Thomas Hall who (depending on which one you read) is either a phone sex operator or a blind call collector for WaMu.
800-699-3423 and 414-462-5902 search appears to be a telemarketer scam setup re: car warranty sales etc.
Adding in numbers that call, leave no answer and a Google search show it listed with numerous complaints from all over the country about just that.
02-28-2009 added 501-977-0960
Here's the really frustrating part of it - they don't leave a message in the voice mail and they hang up if you do answer. When I researched the numbers many people call the number back and have talked with the "collectors" on the other end with little or no success at stopping the calls. Strange thing is the numbers keep on changing and then will stop for a month or two only to start back again for a few weeks.
I will add to this post each time I get a similar call and search it just to find it is the same source. So while you are here look over the interesting stuff.
These nuisance calls have resulted in me no longer bothering to answer if I do not recognize the number or if it is a call from my area code or a close relatives area code. I figure if it is important they will leave a message or call repeatedly right away.
One other interesting item I've uncovered is they are only calling phone numbers that are cell phones. Could there be an ulterior motive of accumulating known subscribed cell phone numbers to sell to 'phone spammers' just like email spammers? Something to think about.
You may have arrived here by doing an Internet search for one of the phone numbers. That is what I did and decided to include these numbers in amongst the blog posts here as I get them.
Reminder: the national Do Not Call site will accept cell phone numbers also

I think the old dude is demented. What's with the tongue?
Here his wife is dressed like a pumpkin pole and walking like a Frankenstein while old John is simulating how he first greeted Sarah
Umm is he about to throw up?
More likely old John was daydreaming about why he would like to have Sarah as his VP. There are no corners to hide in in the Oval Office Sarah.
I think I would consider hunting from a deer stand if it was constructed like this one.
Here is a sequence of pictures showing how to build a class A deer stand:
First you obtain a tiny camper suitable for catching a bit of a nap
Then elevate to a proper height so as to able to obtain a clear view of the surrounding area
Then create an ample seating space to prevent accidental falling
Here you can see the clear field of fire viewing you should have so as to see the deer approaching
Of course should you decide to have a snack of ribs or BBQ chicken you may want to provide a place to have a small fire so as not to start a forest fire.
