Robot Phone Calls

I have been receiving lots of robot phone calls recently, usually with the following message:

“Hi, I found your website on the internet.  Would you like an unending supply of leads? If yes, press 1.  To be removed from our call list, press 9.”

If you don’t press anything, the call quickly disconnects.

This practice is illegal and carries heavy fines… I’m very surprised that companies are getting away with it.  Next time they call, I’m going to try to press 1 and figure out who is behind this scheme.
