Just recieved a call from "OBAMA STIM" anybody Else?
CALLER ID: 1-339-502-6708

It was a robo call presumably using Obama's Stimulus package as it cover for what sounded like a debt consolidation loan. The robo-voice use official sounding references to my current balance with some random reference number and also refereed to some civil code number. I hope nobody fall for this lame ruse.

btw does the DO NOT CALL list still exist? I signed up as soon as it was announced, but now I am getting similar calls all the time again.

1. I haven't gotten that call, but have gotten a couple of other robo-calls this year, and
like you I signed up for the DO NOT CALL list. I'm wondering the same thing you are - why are they calling me trying to sell crap to me and is there anything I can do about it?

2. I could be wrong but
I think you have to re sign up for the no call list once every so often.

3. Do Not Call exempts political, non-profits
In most states, these lists do not apply to non-profits or political campaigns...but in some states they must be registered within the state being called.
Check you state elections boards... and the caller must ID themselves.... good luck
