8. That's a bit pedantic

"...but I was told unless the number took my money that nothing would be done..."


I get it, but that's a bit disingenuous. They are right, it would be a hard case to build until someone actually lost money. But they can use that info as part of an investigation. They just don't want to because these people are notoriously hard to catch. It doesn't even have to be anyone in the San Diego area. These days, the callers can be from anywhere. What really bothers me is the one place that COULD be detecting and addressing this is the phone company that handed out the phone number. These calls originate from somewhere and I suspect the volume alone could be enough to start detecting them and addressing the problem.
