Do Not Call Violation Complaints Declining
donotcallgraphicThe exemptions for survey forms and charities might ruin your day when you’re working at home, but new data suggests that the Do Not Call register has been a success in cutting back on unwanted telephone spam.

According to ACMA, the number of complaints received about unwanted calls declined by 60 per cent over the last year. Doubtless the $300,000 in fines handed out by ACMA to violators had something to do with that.

There are now 3.5 million numbers on the register, which is being expanded to cover businesses and fax numbers.
