|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:I am against the proposed amendment of the Telemarketing Sales Rule to create an additional call abandonment safe harbor to allow telemarketing calls that deliver a prerecorded message to consumers with whom the seller on whose behalf the calls are made has an established business relationship. This will only allow a greater number of these harrassing calls to occur. I am also against an ammendment to the TSR’s call abandonment safe harbor provision that currently requires use of "technology that ensures abandonment of no more than three (3) percent of all calls answered by a person, "measured per day per calling campaign" substituting the phrase "measured over a 30-day period.". This would only allow a high concentration of calls to occur in a short period of time witht he assumption being that it would "even out" in the long run. I DO NOT WANT TO BE BOTHERED BY TELEMARKETERS!!!!!!!!!
