Federal Trade Commission

Since we registered our telephone numbers on the Federal Trade Commission’s Do Not Call Registry, the number of robocalls, advertising calls, and other unwanted calls has more than quadrupled. We used to get 3 or 4 calls per month. Since March 2017, we get AT LEAST 2-4 calls per day on each phone that we answer. I do not answer my land line, as I need to keep it free for outbound calls, so I have no idea how many nuisance calls may be coming in on that line. I believe someone at the FTC has been selling the Do Not Call registered numbers, or they have been hacked and are not protecting our privacy. | The Do Not Call Registry complaint process is difficult and time-consuming if you wish to report an illegal call. Since my husband is 79 and disabled, I believe someone at the FTC is guilty of elder abuse as well as massive privacy violations. THERE IS NO PLACE ON THE FTC WEBSITE TO REPORT SUCH WRONGDOING. I left a phone message for the Inspector General’s office, but I would be amazed if they were to call back.
