Comments:We find prerecorded messages even more offensive than calls made by sales representatives & habitually hang up immediately upon recognizing such a call. This type of call is equivalent to junk mail or spam and is an invasion of our privacy. It is the "lowest of lows" in an attempt to get people to buy something. I know of no one who listens to these messages past the first few seconds. It is a waste of any funds spent recording or circulating these ridiculous messages. They constitute a last ditch or desperate attempt to solicit something!
