|Subject:||Trade Regulation Rule on Telemarketing Sales|
|Title:||Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Request for Comment|
|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:It is a surprise to me that any agency overseeing a program would even admit that a loophole exists in the program which would allow as much adverse publicity and public outrage as will be heard when the public finds out their proposal. As for the FTC, the government overseer of the "Do Not Call" registry, I feel it is detrimental to your credibility to stop this before it goes any further. Answer the question yourself, Mr./Mrs. Reader, what does a telemarketer have to offer you? Is it something you really want? And how many times will you be interrupted if they are allowed to resume calling? I would suggest that you, the FTC, petition Congress's help in legislating amendments to close these loopholes. Let's don't take even one step backwards toward the past in this regard. It's too peaceful around my house right now to have it interrupted by some inane, money-hungry businesses who have nothing better to do than NOT actually work to sell their product or service and therefore rely on telemarketers to do all their dirty work. STOP THEM NOW!!
