Comments:I have no pre-existing (or existing) business relationships that merit telemarketing phone calls. These calls have doubled in the past four months and tripled in the past month, occuring sometimes on weekends, but mostly weekdays after 7:00 p.m. at the escalating rate of sometimes every 15/20 minutes. I thought this would stop when I signed up for the Do Not Call Registry. I work at night and have had to resort to turning the sound off my phone and answering machine during these hours. This must stop! Please make it more difficult, not easier, for this virulent cancer to spread.
