Letter: We need a law to stop unwanted calls
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

The letter from Frank Eddings on Nov. 19, "'Do not call' a failure," hit the nail on the head. My phone company blocks a total of 12 numbers only and will not do any more. This past spring I had to buy a caller ID unit that blocks calls. It now has 54 blocked numbers on it and I added another one today.

Come on, Congress, you can fix this. We should not be required to receive calls we do not want. I have caller ID, but that is not the answer. Some of these companies that call and receive a block just use another number that comes in to my phone. While writing this letter I received another call that I have now blocked.

Please, how about a little help?
