Does it really do any good to report unsolicited calls that offer services you did not ask for, and do not want?

Asked by Eureka (1655points) December 19th, 2011

I was in a minor car accident on Saturday (not my fault!). No one was hurt, but in the course of exchanging information, the police asked for my phone number. I gave them my cell phone, as that is the only phone I have.

Since this morning, starting at 8 am, I have gotten no less than 55 calls from ambulance chasing lawyers, injury referral agencies, and chiropractors – some of them located clear across the country from my location. All of these people got my phone number from the public records.

My phone number is on the Do Not Call list, yet that seems to make no difference. Is there anyone I can whine and complain to about this?

Make that 56 calls – just got another one.
