Usa, (PressExposure) September 15, 2008 -- "We're proud to reach this milestone," said PSF Australia General Manager Fred Delsey.
"We believe the site offers our Australian users a unique resource for stopping telemarketers from disrupting their lives"
Despite the Australian government's passage of do-not-call legislation, many still receive annoying sales calls on their home lines or even mobile phones.
Phone Spam Filter Australia solves this problem in three ways. First, it enables users to check whether others have reported the phone number. Second, users can post their own complaints about telemarketers.
Finally, PSF offers a unique interface allowing users to automatically check whether an incoming call is a telemarketer.
"I use Phone Spam Filter's automated blocking system at my home," says John Talloon of Sydney. "I'd say my solicitor calls have dropped 95 percent."
PSF is a user supported service. Like sophisticated spam filters for email, user reports automatically help identify telemarketers. As more users file reports, the system becomes more powerful.
