Comments:I signed up for the do-not-call list with the understanding that I would not be called. Changing the rules after the fact breaks the spirit of the opt-out list, if not the contract. Create a new list and let people opt-in if they want to, see how many do. It is already difficult to stop receiving calls from vendors (who have a relationship with me) even after telling them first to put me back on the do-not-call list, and that I am on that list and they shouldn't be calling, but I will file a separate complaint about Citibank for violating that rule. In addition, until this country's phone businesses stop charging the recipients of cellular/pcs calls for airtime, this type of telemarketing cannot be allowed to happen.
