Comments:I do not wish to receive autodialed, pre-recorded direct marketing messages. I believe this is violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act 1991, 47 U.S.C. ss 227 (b) restrictions on use of telephone equipment, concerning autodialed and automated messages which clearly states this type of call is not allowed unless with prior permission. DO NOT CALL list means just that, no exceptions. I also do not want automated calls from telemarketing companies that call and then hang up after verifying if a number is in service. I would prefer an Opt-In policy for all businesses, requiring permission first before calling current or previous customers with telemarketing and Opt-In restrictions on companies that share customer contact information with so-called business partner and affiliates for direct marketing purposes. No calling and no sharing without permission obtained first from the consumer.
