Comments:I am on Social Security and have limited income. I pay for my phone service and it costs dearly. I am on the Do Not Call List as well as the Direct Marketing Association's Do Not Call and Do Not Mail lists. I tell every company I do business with to put me on their company's internal Do Not Call/Do Not Mail/Do Not Rent/Sell/Distribute lists. I am elderly and can't get around the house as well as I used to - when my phone rings, I expect it to be friends or family. I keep on getting late calls and messages on my answering machine and those calls where no one is on the line. I also keep getting pre-recorded calls where the phone number given in the message is not the same as the Caller ID phone number. When I call the Caller ID phone # to complain, I never reach a person. When I call the phone # from the pre-recorded message, I get a sales person who "can't" put me on their company's internal Do not Call/Mail, etc lists..... You stopped the faxes (most of them)... now stop the sales calls!.
