Voice Mail Spam
Email SPAM isn't really an issue anymore for me thanks to SimpleFilter but its getting to the point where voice mail spam is starting to bug me. I figure I'm getting a voice mail spam once every two weeks or so now. Its more annoying since it happens on both phone lines here within minutes of each other. Call blocking is of no use since this latest phone spam is sent directly to voice mail without an actual call being place to the number (which call blocking can handle).
I just spoke with the phone company and they say their hands are tied. This kind of automated dialing of a bunch of numbers in bulk is illegal in the US I believe but apparently according to Bell the CRTC has been sitting on the companies request to do something about this since 1999.
Anyone who has more facts on this please comment here.
