PrivacyStar, an Android app and service that allows subscribers to report and block telemarketers and debt collectors who violate consumer protection laws, hit a record milestone this week for reports filed with the FTC. Users of the service made their 100,000th report to the Federal Trade Commission, helping the FTC to crack down on the almost 20% of said callers who could care less about the “no-call list” or federal protection laws for consumers.
PrivacyStar allows users to block calls, SMS messages, while giving caller ID info for known offenders, and a utility to search unknown numbers to see who it is that is calling you repeatedly. I don’t know about you, but I have been receiving a lot more calls on my cell number even though it is on the do not call list, trying to sell me male enhancement pills or a new mortgage. At $2.99 a month, PrivacyStar may be just the app I was looking for to help with this problem. Check it out on the Android Market and let us know what you think.
