People should have a choice if they want to receive marketing calls or not. It is a nightmare when every other call is a sales call. Lets get some rules out there so that the consumer doesn't have to put up with this. And...please, please don't allow these machines that dial us & then half the time hang up on you after you wait to see who is there. The machines malfunction & keep recalling, then hanging up...and then we have no way to even know who is calling so we can get it to STOP. And, it should be absolutely illegal for a sales call to leave messages on answering machines.
Thanks so much!
