Hate Telemarketing Calls?

heloise hints, telemarketing tips,Those annoying telemarketing calls seem to come just when we are sitting down to dinner. You can do something to stop them from coming into your home. Follow these steps:

1. Add your phone number to the National Do Not Call Registry by going online to: DONOTCALL.GOV or call 1-888-382-1222. When you register online, you will get an e-mail confirmation. You must click onto the link to assure that your number is added to the registry.
2. After you number has been in the registry for 3 months, most telemarketing calls should stop.
3. Not all calls will stop because some can come from companies that you do business with. If you think these calls are fraudulent, file a complaint by calling
1-877-382-4357.

    I too have registered several times with the do not call list- now I tried nomorobo and was told my landline (Windstream) and cell phone (Trac-fone) do not work with them.

    I have registered several times with the Do Not Call list. I still receive scam calls – perhaps several a day from the same people. The Do Not Call list does not work on land lines. That is a fact.

    Instead, you can also join Nomorobo at http://www.nomorobo.com/. It’s easy and once on the site, the calls don’t completely stop, but if your phone rings once it means it was a known solicitor.

    hate to break it to you, but the Do Not Call list does NOT work. It has been on the national news that it doesn’t work!
