    They are legal within the permitted uses allowed by current law. You'd have to outlaw them altogether to stop them. If you wanted to profit from stopping a particular outfit who besieges you with calls, take the trouble to find out their street mailing address, and send them a "trash call" warning letter by certified mail. The mailing tells them that you consider their calls to be harassment, that you will only accept further calls if you are paid, say, $15,000 (or $50,000) per call, and that their receipt of the letter constitutes their acceptance of this offer.

    This will give you the legitimate ability to formally bill them per each time you get a call from their direction, or attach a UCC lien to their business and send collection companies after them if they don't pay. This should stop the calls from the offending party pronto.

    I have thought deeply about this problem. I have conducted some focus groups. I have reviewed the technology. I have run hundreds of experiments. I have found a failsafe 100% solution. Unplug the damn phone.

    Uh where is that check.
