|Title:||Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Request for Comment|
|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:I am writing to object to the FTC's consideration of allowing telemarketers (either with whom I don't or do have a business relationship) call my home and leave prerecorded messages. Even though I am on the Do Not Call List (both federal and state), I still come home to find numerous voice mail messages on my home phone. None of these were solicited nor are they from companies with whom I have done business. I resent my privacy being invaded and having to listen to all of the messages to find out which ones are legitimate and which ones aren't. If the regulation is changed to allow companies to leave pre-recorded messages, I will disconnect my telephone service and rely solely on my cell phone for communication. That will be the only way I have any control over my privacy. I hope it will not be necessary to do that.
