What is the most
annoying thing when you are having dinner with your families or playing with your kids?
Yes, the telemarketing calls! You have to run to your telephone or caller id screen box
because you don't know who's calling. Not picking up the calls from telemarketers? But it
rings again and again...
Now, why not try our Telemarketing Blocker,
free caller id software that stops telemarketing calls. It retrieves caller's telephone
number using a voice modem. If the caller id is in blacklist it will play a SIT tone and a
special message (" Please put me on your do not call list") to those calls and
then hang up the call.
It's easy to setup and easy
to use. Also it's FREE!
|Loophole Of National Do
Not Call List (Registry)
Can I register my
business phone number?
The National Do Not Call List (Registry) is only for personal phone numbers. Business to
business calls are not covered by the National Do Not Call List (Registry).
If I register my number on the National Do Not Call
Registry, will it stop all telemarketing calls?
No. Placing your number on the National Do Not Call Registry will stop most, but not all,
telemarketing calls. You may still receive calls from political organizations, charities,
telephone surveyors, the business of insurance (to the extent that it is regulated by
state law), or companies with which you have an existing business relationship.
I get calls soliciting money for political organizations
or for charities - will the National Do Not Call List (Registry) stop those calls?
Political solicitations are not covered by the National Do Not Call List. Telemarketers
calling to solicit charitable contributions are not covered by the registry, but if you
make a request to a specific organization that they not call you, they are required to
honor your request. If they subsequently call you again, they may be subject to a fine of
up to $11,000.
What about telephone surveys?
If the call is really for the sole purpose of conducting a survey, it is not covered.
Only telemarketing calls are covered - that is, calls that solicit sales of goods or
services. Callers purporting to take a survey, but also offering to sell goods or
services, must comply with the National Do Not Call List (Registry).
My number is on the National Do Not Call List
(Registry). After I bought something from a company, a telemarketer representing that
organization called me. Is this a violation?
No. Even if you put your number on the National Do Not Call List (Registry), a
company with which you have an established business relationship may call you for up to 18
months after your last purchase or delivery from it, or your last payment to it, unless
you ask the company not to call again. (In that case, the company must honor your request
not to call. If they subsequently call you again, they may be subject to a fine of up to
$11,000.) Also, if you make an inquiry to a company or submit an application to it, for
three months afterwards the company can call you. If you make a specific request to that
company not to call you, however, then the company may not call you, even if you have an
established business relationship with that company.
If you do not want to put your number on the national do
not call registry, you can still prohibit individual telemarketers, one by one, from
calling by asking them to put you on their company's do not call list.
