What happened to the "No call" list?

A number of people have commented to me that, despite being on the National Do Not Call Registry, they have started receiving telemarketing calls again.

I notice this myself.

According to the website, your registration should not expire. And yet, I am receiving calls from unknown entities asking me to participate in surveys.

I did not register my cell phone, on which for about two years I have been receiving calls from someone speaking a foreign language. I think it's Arabic, which was kind of disturbing at first. Then my dad told me he was getting weird messages in foreign languages on his cell.

I guess telemarketing companies found a way around the 2008 law.
