    It hasn't been called out or it is really hard for them to block them.

    When the authorities just got a hand on putting a crack down on it, the spammers created spoofing which they use a working regular phone number of a random person as a host.

    The only reason anything in this country is legal.  Somebody, somewhere is making money.

  • Now that’s a question to be asked

  • John 3:31 He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all.

    John 6:38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.

    They are illegal in most cases.  It's a combination of the government not putting enough resources towarding enforcing the law and the phone companies not wanting to foot the bill to put in technology to stop the spam calls.

    In many instances, the recipient has given implicit or explicit permission, because he/she didn't read the fine print when they had initial contact with the organization in question.
