Result of FTC crackdown on Do Not Call violators?

According to a recent article linked to at Slashdot, the FTC has recently been cracking down on telemarketers who violate the do not call registry. Recently, my voicemail has received a number of sales robo-calls (trying to sell loan products) for which I couldn't identify the origin numbers on caller ID. They had too many digits to be what I know of as a ten-digit phone number. Later, I found that they were actually from international phone numbers beginning with the digits 445.

Is outsourcing robo-calls overseas the way that telemarketers are going to get around the restrictions Do Not Call list?

Edit: Here's one:

If anyone in the UK would like to prank call a phone number, they're trying to sell mortgages.
