Two months back, I started telling callers that I am on “do not call” list, now I will report your company name to State AG. Then one caller told me, you may need to update your telephone no on “do not call list” and I did. After that, till now, zero calls for google list or GE or magazine subscription.
I have looked up the do not call place but I am always very leary of clicking on a dot-gov address. I was hoping to find out all I could before I had to do that. Going to any dot-gov gives me the willies...
I don't like being rude but honestly, you end up being rude.....
Do not call list is as effective
as the do not rob list for banks.
Cancel the land line. Get an iPhone ,
Jailbreak it, then install iblacklist.
I’m stuck using iPhone until some one comes up with a comparable app for android.
My wife updates our “do not call” list at least every other month — when we start getting calls again.
She also tells them that we live in a “Do Not Call State” and requests that we be removed from call lists. Since you can put as many as 3 numbers on the do not call request each time, she also puts our cell numbers on it.
The telemarketing calls stop immediately. I think the web site is
Even though the web site says this is a permanent “fix” don’t believe it. It needs renewing regularly. But it does work.
She also has a web site somewhere that you can put your address on and it will slow down the junk mail you receive.
You do need to know, though, that if you respond to any of those requests for “votes” — whether on the air or by phone, we’re told that you create the “significant” relationship such that advertisers on the web site that’s requesting you to vote can get at you if you put your phone number into the fill-in of personal information. That means, if I interpret it right, that any advertiser with whom you have a “significant” relationship can keep calling you and they are within their “rights” to bug (call) you.
Haven’t been able to verify that last part though, but we don’t participate in those online polls anyway.
