Comments:I do not think there should be any loop holes for the telemaketers. What is an established business relationship? If they call and you tell them your not interested and not to call any more, does this give them the right to call back at a later date via a computer message? They talked to me once. They do not pay us for their harrassment so why should we waste any of our time at home and/or cell phone minutes for something we do not want in the first place. Telemarketing is a usless business in my book. If you don't answer your cell phone their message would go directly to "Voice Mail" which you are charged for not the telemarketer. If you do happen to allow these parasites to have this option then you had better make them pay for the call to the consumer for the privledge. How many times of saying no to a caller constitutes being harrassed? I have been called by the same company but different callers and told them the same answer and to be taken off of their call list. They tell me they will note the file but I get called again a few weeks down the road. How much can I sue the company for? If they are a corperation the answer is ZERO! The FTC must put a stop to these people.
