Comments:The abandoned calls are very bothersome. I'm on the DNC list and still receive 1-4 calls per day that are all from "non-profit" organizations, of which, approximately 50% are abandoned calls. Ever since I placed myself on the DNC list, the amount of calls I receive asking for money has increased dramatically. I probably receive 3 times as many calls from organizations asking for money now than I did prior to being placed on the DNC list. It's actually worse than when I had the businesses calling. Additionally, I consistently receive calls from precorded messages that are for another person and they call my home every day. They do not allow you to speak to a person and do not allow me to opt out of the calling list because they are calling the wrong person. In short, please stop the organizations from calling all the time, it is abusive.
