I am writing to urge you to close the legal loophole in the telemarketing rules that allows telemarketers to play their "free-to-pay conversion" trick. Americans deserve better protection from these unethical marketing practices. Those who are least able to afford these mistakes are most often their victims, such as the poor and the elderly. I urge you to fix this loophole.
