Is it just me or anyone else getting a lot of calls from telemarketers?:mad:
Last few weeks I been getting 1 to 2 a day. I check the caller Id now and screen calls.
Anything out of area I let go to voice mail if I don't know who it is..
What happen to the National Do Not Call Registry ? Does it still work?:AddEmoticons04259:

I'm right there with you, Frank! Out of area or blocked numbers go to voicemail. I have even had local suppliers calling me because of questions I wrote on here! Everybody must be hurting.

The automated calls drive me insane. " Update your 411 Google listing for free." They will actually try to convince you that they work for Google when they are just another company willing to optimize your Google Free Map listing. I have at least a dozen of them programmed into my phone. The online yellow pages are even worse since they "update" your listing and try to up sale you to a more visual add which no one ever sees anyhow. Buyer beware.

I Get over 10 solicitation calls a day. If you get only1-2 consider yourself very lucky.

The do not call registry does not apply to businesses.

If it did potential clients would also be blocked from calling your business.


That is also why you are allowed call other businesses and offer to improve their lives by performing your services.

It's a two way street.

Most of the telemarketers i get originate in India.
Normally i get calls everyday and into the early evening.
However, since the start of the Commonwealth Games in Delhi India, the calls have dropped off.
Maybe they are all watching the games.

Dave the do not call list applies to any number reguardless business or private. It is in place to stop the solicitation not the purchase of services.

Yes guys I have been getting a bootyload of these lately. even posted the other day with a-holes saying that google maps was not free anymore. however the tag system is not free. So if you dont buy from google then google can boot you. like they did me!!!!

And if you have a website make darn sure you state above the numbers "solicitors member of http://www.ftc.gov/donotcall" or something like that. I havent done it yet but will be tomarrow for darn sure.
