These are the professional plaintiffs and their attorneys that have made a business of suing anyone that calls their cell phone. These are the folks that dominate the world of TCPA and Do Not Call Court Actions. And of course, the source of most class action lawsuits in the millions of dollars.

There are only about 80,000 previous litigants in this arena, and increasing at the rate of about 1500 per month. With just under 300 million cells in the US, this should not make a dent in your available numbers to call.
