Today Verizon Wireless stepped up its attacks against telemarketers who are illegally calling its customers. Verizon claims that a number of firms are working together to call its customers. At one point, the companies involved were calling Verizon subscribers up to 100,000 times per hour. Most of the calls are offering automobile warranties.
