Comments:I would like to say that I feel telemarketers are just another form of home invasion. I don't want them here but they come in anyway. I recieve anywhere from 5 to 10 calls from telemarketers per day. Some are pre-recorded and others are actual people. These companies need to understand something about their "consumers", if and when we want something new or changed we will call them. Just like when you want new furniture, you don't wait for the furniture stores to call, you go to the store to get it. Just one last comment on another point of telemarketers and do-not call. Now they want our cellphone numbers to give us their speeches on stuff I don't want. Everytime they would call my cellphone, I would be charged a fee. Now is that really fair to those of us who don't want bothered with these calls? Is it fair that I would be charged for my minutes like that? It is paying for something I don't want. I ask you, would you walk into a store, pay a fee to get in, even though you know that store has nothing you want? Its the same thing.
