Denver (AP) The state's top consumer protection prosecutor says he's struggling to enforce Colorado’s no call law, because solicitors have taken their operations overseas, and they're using technology to avoid being identified.

Deputy Attorney General for Consumer Protection Jan Zavislan says he gets about 400 calls a month from people complaining about violations of the law passed in 2002, and he says it's becoming tougher to enforce.

He told the Joint Budget Committee today that more and more subpoenas are being issued to more and more telecommunications Providers to track the calls, and officials are learning that some Calls are originating in the Caribbean, South America, Europe and Eastern Europe.
