[News] FCC puts $50K bounty on heads of robo telemarketers

Hey, MGD and others - up for a challenge? At least the FCC is admitting that they can't figure it out....

Your link says it is the FTC which has placed the bounty.

FTC ( and some states attorney generals) just got 5 incarnations of Heather, some including cuff'em Dano arrests in Florida.

While this isn't Heather - I'll bet the buggers are hedging their bets
I got 407-705-3246 a couple of days ago. I don't have voicemail (by choice) and they just let the phone ring. Usually these idiots hang up after 5 rings. Not this outfit.
I looked them up after they hung up.

The number was said to be a vacation type scam, or a political survey. Both were listed as FL. These calls started in late Oct. from the complaints, so I'm betting the bust didn't get the bigwigs. The timing just seems odd.
