Comments:Don't you dare go ahead with this `pre-recorded message telemarketing.' How could you risk americans to advertising that they clearly don't want? Don't you remember that one of the goals of the government is to defend and protect its people? Do you really consider that this will reduce the amount of compaints you get about fradulent telesales activity? I have experienced firsthand the dishonesty of telesales when I was younger and less experienced. With such a historical precidient of dishonesty and lies, do you really expect the telesales to change its way of doing business? To me, and I have discussed this issue with many others of my friends and business associates, telesales=spam. It is an unwanted commericial avalance of products that are not wanted, and time that is wasted. If you do this, many, many people will suffer from telesales deceptive influence. I can't think of anything that this industry does, that another industry doesn't do better and more efficiently. The internet is more targeted for sales messages, the phone book more ability to cross shop, and the local business better for support. The only thing that telesales do is use high pressure sales tactics, I guess useful for their next career in auto sales. This is not the kind of thing that the USA needs more of. Put a stop to this madness! Sincearly, Brian Povlsen P.S. Don't call me, I'll call you.
