At www.donotcall.gov you can quickly verify if your number(s) are on the DNC List. Mine has been on there continuously since 2006, without renewal. FWIW.

Re: small claims: WHO do I bring to small claims and what do I charge them with?

I know that is true but as noted, you can not answer any of these calls for a long, long time and that doesn't seem to slow 'em down one bit. I wonder if there even is a call list; perhaps they just continually cycle through a computerized phone number generator.
