I have a great list of about 3,000 people. But at my wirehouse the only way to scrub is to dial each number, and with 88% of the ones I've scrubbed like this being on the DNC it's gonna take me ages to turn it into a usable list.  I have access to a lot of data through various sources, but the scrubbing is a drain.

 
Anyone know of a good way, or cheap way to scrub out the bulk of the dnc numbers?
(they are currently in an excel spreadsheet)

It was a couple hundred bucks, but you just download numbers from www.donotcall.gov, takes about 4 minutes after you register (you get 5 free zip codes).  Then you import your excel file, click "Check or Run", and in about 3 seconds it pops out a new excel file with a column that says "OK" or "DNC".  Hit sort on your excel file and it will lump all the "OK"'s together.
 
It doesn't get much easier than that.
