Just when you thought it was safe to answer your phone again, here come the robocalls! A recent report by NJ1015's news reporter David Matthau states that New Jersey residents are complaining that they have seen a rise in the amount of robocalls they get even if they are registered on the Federal Do Not Call list.

Jim likened getting robocalls to being the movie character Carol Anne, in the film Poltergeist II, who picked up the phone and uttered the now famous phrase "They're BAAAAACK!"


Or maybe robocalls were what the gods punished people with 3,000 years ago? Locusts, fires, plagues and telemarketers all tortured people back in the ancient times. And now it seems like we are being plagued by them once again in NJ.
