Re: NYTimes: Who's on the Line? Increasingly, Caller ID Is Duped

I realize complaining may not get quick results, but you're guaranteed to get NO results if you DON'T complain. With that in mind, you should do several things:

Add all your numbers to the national and your state's Do Not Call lists
Complain to your local telco, wireless company and LD company
Complain to the FTC, DOJ, your state Attorney General or Office of Consumer Protection, and your local police or county sheriff
Complain to the FCC and your state PUC / PSC

If the caller is asking for your credit card info, contact your bank and credit card company to let them know; if they get enough complaints and enough info to identify the caller, they may be able to file their own lawsuits to stop them.
