Cell phone telemarking calls...

Just like the guy from this forum, today I got an unsolicited recorded ad call to my cell phone from "Dorothy" at "The Mortgage Branch" ... caller-ID read 815-960-1840 , which doesn't come up in a Google search. Calling the number back had a recording w/o any identification of the company.

http://killthecalls.com/suing-telemarketers.html claims that if you're on DoNotCall (takes 31 days), then any particular telemarketer's call costs them an immediate $500 starting at call number 3. Not sure if anyone's had real-life cash payouts, but it'd be nice.

Hell, it'd be nice if someone set up a web service to help people log their progress in lawsuits against the bastards.
