Need a report button for bad sales call attempts.

Just had an interesting sales call.  Well, there wasn't any call per se.  The phone rang and the caller ID was for a website.  When I answered, all that was playing was music and no person on the other end.  Annoying, right?  I hung up, looked up the website and found out it was a cloud VoIP website.  As soon as I went to the website a chat window popped up welcoming me.  Ugh.

Not sure if clever sales attempt phone call or rude way of luring me to their website.  I'm feeling the latter and also feeling taken advantage of.  I want to report this deceitful attempt at a sales call, but don't know if that's a thing?  If I mention the name then I also feel I'm spreading the word for them for free.

Bummer.  I don't think Ajit Pai is going to care.  He's certainly busy rolling back Net Neutrality for his Verizon buddies I'm sure.  Nonetheless, its a place to start I guess.  Thanks, Brian!

Fortunately, I bet the people dealing with things like this complaint system might actually be the ones likely to care ;-)

For example: in the past I had great success with the FCC's Do Not Call list (Which I honestly wasn't expecting to work, but it absolutely did! I had needed to get a landline, and as soon as I did, it got a ton of daily telemarketing calls. Soon after adding the number to the DNC list, the calls dropped to nothing. The system worked!)

Nice.  In retrospect, I am just being bitter about it haha.  Just like we at EE do need data, I'm sure FCC needs the data as well to look upon and see 'do we deal with this now?  Is it a large or small problem?' :)  Who knows maybe they've already been reported or maybe I'm the first!
