I recently (about 5 months ago) moved to a new state, and right after I switched over utilities in the process of moving, I registered my phone number on the DNC list. Apparently, the local newspaper doesn't check that list, and keeps trying to make sales calls. All of these calls include a few seconds of silence before they connect to the line as well. I'd almost understand if it was collections and they had an old account/phone number, but it's not. They've just got a great new deal on Sunday delivery. I've filed two complaints on the DNC website so far, including one just today for the call at 8:15am. When I tried to tell the person that 8am was too early to call (thinking they weren't in my time zone), she hung up on me.
Outside of repeated complaints on the website, is there anything I can do to stop the harassment?
