Telemarketing review - comment
Telemarketers should be restrained from doing the following:
They now dial 5 or 6 numbers at the same time. The telemarketer talks to the first person who picks up the phone. The rest of the consumers pick up their phone and find a dead line - seems like a wrong number.
A few days ago, I got 7 "wrong number hang ups" between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. Is this fair?
Now I must let my "machine" screen my calls - but, what about persons who do not have an answering machine for whatever reason.
