I hate robocalls and so does almost everyone else.
"With more than 100 million calls placed every day, robocalling might well be the most ubiquitous, most hated, and least punished crime in the country."
"By the end of this year, according to First Orion, a maker of caller ID and call-blocking software, nearly half of all telephone traffic in the US will be spam calls."
"Today, a single person in a modestly equipped office can make millions of calls a day by renting some server space, installing off-the-shelf autodialing software, and paying a VoIP provider to transmit calls. Some of the software is open source, and VoIP carriers often advertise a month of free service as a way to entice potential customers. Software companies offer everything you need in one package—a robocall starter kit, available for anyone to buy."
"Best of all, it’s cheap: VoIP services cost three-fifths of a penny per minute, and that’s only if the call is answered."
Most of us have no way to fight back.
But someone really did and continues to do so. Fred Garvin deserves recognition and appreciation.
