This is good news on phone scams for a change. People have been reporting scam calls and it's a relief that the scammers are not as free as they hoped to be. Keep up the good job!

Just in case the FTC might want to investigate, I found tons of reports on scam calls at Callercenter.com that included the scammer phone numbers. Please put them to a stop, too.
