Comments:It is unfair to tallow telemarketers to call and use recorded messages that clog up not only our phone lines but also our answering machine. We frequently forward our number to receive "Crisis" calls from our home phones and individuals are unable to get to a crisis counselor due to the high volume of telemarketers calling our phone number. We are dealing with life and death situations from suicide to substance abuse to domestic violence. Please do not let telemarketers clog our phone lines at our organization OR home. It is unfair and unsafe!
