True you can't opt out.  It's automated.  Violates law though, if the setup manipulates the system so as opt out is impossible.

Report by eggs&ham Long ago Unknown
When you answer your phone, and you can immediately know it is an automated call, press the # sign as fast as you can, as many times as you can. It messes their system, and deletes your phone number.

They just called me! Just now! I know what would stop them - $100,000 per call fines. And, the government could use some cash right now!
Report by ScamBlocker Long ago Unknown
The government/DNC won’t help you; as a matter of fact they are the ones that are giving your number out.  What was supposed to help you has turned into a weapon against you.  Each month a new list of DNC numbers are released by your ever faithful government to “help” stop telemarketing phone calls but at the same time they make it available to anybody that wants a current list of WORKING NUMBERS!  Guess what by listing your number on the DNC you have just given it to every scam artist out there that has enough balls to register with the DNC.  Your government is too stupid, lazy or calloused to look right under their nose.  Remove your number from the DNC and in two months your scam callers will stop calling (though it may increase local calls).  If you don’t want to remove your number I suggest getting a call blocking device of some type.  I currently have 79 area codes blocked and at least 13 local numbers blocked and I still get repeated calls.  I love getting repeat calls because when my call blocking devices kick in I know it’s costing these morons money because the devices pick up and then hang up and I never hear the phone ring.   Get the last laugh on these jack***es by blocking them not just by complaining.  Complaining won’t stop the calls, -- Nothing Will – but you can silence your phone if you want to. The devices/programs I use are DIGITONE CALL BLOCKER 10 and PHONE TRAY. I may get the occasional stray call that gets through, BUT ONLY ONCE!!!!

Report by At The Lake Long ago Unknown
When I get these I hit the "#" sign about 6 - 8 times quickly.  Normally it confuses the automated system and it logs the call as an error and most often removes the number from their call list.  If there is a "person" I normally just say "hold on a second" and put the phone down.  It is hilarious to listen to them shouting "hello, hello, hello" before they finally hang up.

I let my son answer one of these the other night, he worked at the pizza parlor in high school, he told me to let him answer when he saw the ID on the TV screen, he just answered it like he was at work as he just said "Hello, _---___--'s Pizza, how may I take your order tonight", they hung up just like that. Work on your answer voice for something like this and maybe they will think they got their call # list messed up and take you off of it, It wasn't this particular #, it was on the ID tonight when I came back from the store, just might help, good luck. He took it as he knows how bad I hate putting up with them and you have to wait on the answer machine and then sometimes they leave some message you can't make out, we were in the middle of something so it worked out well.

OK: useful information time:  When these ($%&^) call, hang up then pick up the phone and dial *57.  This causes the call to be traced by the telephone company even if the caller was spoofing their caller ID. (it costs $4 on your phone bill unless *57 service is already part of your telephone service package) Then, once you have traced the same number three times, file a complaint with the local police department. The police department can (and is supposed to ) retrieve the tracing information from the telephone company.

A local TV station just ran a piece indicating that the scammers and marketeers are ignoring the law because of Robo call technology and they evade getting fined.  I truly believe phone companies need to be heavily fined vs giving businesses such as these breaks in their bills.  Do you know what all those fees comsumers are for?  Please put the pressure on by contacting your local SAG and local media.

You're doing exactally what you are complaining others are doing only you are wasting more time and space than they are. Just pick up the phone and hang it up.

Report by Marilyn, here's what's annoying . . . Long ago Unknown
. . . People who use this as an excuse to whine and vent, rather than as a powerful took to pool information with which to fight back.If all you "do" about the problem is express an opinion -- here -- that the law needs to be changed, you waste your time and ours. If you write to your elected state and federal representatives, then you're closer to being of some use.Think about it:     Right now, two issues on the political stage are Health Care and Torture. Telemarketing, for many, is torture. If you read these posts, and ads on this site which say things like "Harassed by Phone Calls?" you already know this. So, those who are opposed to torture of our enemies should be quite willing to put a stop to this torture.     There is an ever-growing body of evidence that stress causes a large percentage of health issues. Some doctors give estimates as high as (or higher than) 75% of patient visits being caused by stress. So, anyone who has the slightest interest in any kind of health care availability increase or who advocates any -- no matter how narrow -- particular kind of health care program should be eager to reduce stress among the citizenry.     Which means putting far more restrictions on telemarketing. Whether they are opposed to torture or in favor of health care, the conclusion is the same. And, if they claim telemarketing is not torture, check this: Do they give out their personal home telephone numbers? Are those numbers listed in the phone book? If not, then they are hypocrites, and clearly recognize the stressful -- torturing -- nature of telemarketing.------------------Don't whine. Do something. Post useful contact information about whoever calls you. Don't brag about the stupid act of not answering the phone to find out who is doing the harassment. Grow a pair, pick up the phone, ask some questions. Even play along, if that's what it takes. Find out who is making the calls, then post real information of the useful kind here.And, think about filing lawsuits yourself. If the FCC or FTC is able to collect ten billion trillion dollars from a telemarketer for violating the rules, you won't get a single cent. If you sue them, you can get as much as $20,000 per call.While that is an unlikely and difficult goal to reach (IT HAS BEEN DONE.), it's highly likely and not too difficult to collect between $500 and %1,500 per VIOLATION. And, a single call can potentially comprise multiple violations.

Well, if you're a telemarketer, of course you think telemarketing is totally legitimate.

They asked me my occupation and they hung up without asking any questions about radio stations. It was probably my former employer.

Because of limitations in the jurisdiction of the FTC and FCC, calls from or on behalf of political organizations, charities, and telephone surveyors would still be permitted, as would calls from companies with which you have an existing business relationship, or those to whom you’ve provided express agreement in writing to receive their calls. However, if you ask a company with which you have an existing business relationship to place your number on its own do-not-call list, it must honor your request.  You should keep a record of the date you make the request."   (www.donotcall.gov).

I have been dealing with these people calling me since 2009. I have asked them to take me off their list and all they do is hang up on me. Time to shut this business down. I'm not sure what else to do. I called my Local Phone Co., talked to the Police and filed for the 3rd time on the "Do Not Call List".

This is from an old telemarketer. When you request to be removed from their calling databank,you should also ask for a letter to be mailed to you stating you have been removed.

Maybe this post explains why there are so many illegal telemarketing calls. Someone starts out as an interviewer, comes to imagine they know all the rules, gets promoted . . . and then applies a lot of rules or implements a lot of waivers that don't exist.NOBODY is entitled to call after 9 p.m.ALL COMPANIES OF ANY FORM, CALLING FOR ANY REASON, are required to stop calling when notified of the recipient's request to stop. Some pretend that, unless you say, "Put us on your do not call list." they are not required to do it, but the reality is that they are prohibited from interfering -- in any way -- with a do not call request. That includes pretending the request did not take what they consider to be the "right form."This statement is true: " . . .they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission."And, "If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list..." the company is not in compliance with the law. A supervisor or manager may be able to help, but if the caller can't do it, chances are the company is n't even trying to comply. Part of the confusion stems from the fact that they are allowed to call even people who are on state or national Do Not Call registries. However, ALL entities (Even politicians.) are required to have internal DNC lists. They're also required to immediately put you on their list as soon as you ask.

I used to work for market research companies as an interviewer, market research survey calls are not included in the law by the National DNC list, so you may receive calls from market research, they also do not have time restrictions like solicitors since they are not selling anything, companies like Gallup however try to keep it no later than 9 PM.  Most research companies also can disposition a call as Do Not Call, and have the number on a list, but not all of them do this, they are also not required to do so, Gallup and MSR out of Omaha however do, Its annoying, they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission.  If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list...ask for a supervisor or manager...they'll normally get you on something or remove the number from the current program database.  I hope this helps.

The government/DNC won’t help you; as a matter of fact they are the ones that are giving your number out.  What was supposed to help you has turned into a weapon against you.  Each month a new list of DNC numbers are released by your ever faithful government to “help” stop telemarketing phone calls but at the same time they make it available to anybody that wants a current list of WORKING NUMBERS!  Guess what by listing your number on the DNC you have just given it to every scam artist out there that has enough balls to register with the DNC.  Your government is too stupid, lazy or calloused to look right under their nose.  Remove your number from the DNC and in two months your scam callers will stop calling (though it may increase local calls).  If you don’t want to remove your number I suggest getting a call blocking device of some type.  I currently have 79 area codes blocked and at least 13 local numbers blocked and I still get repeated calls.  I love getting repeat calls because when my call blocking devices kick in I know it’s costing these morons money because the devices pick up and then hang up and I never hear the phone ring.   Get the last laugh on these jack***es by blocking them not just by complaining.  Complaining won’t stop the calls, -- Nothing Will – but you can silence your phone if you want to. The devices/programs I use are DIGITONE CALL BLOCKER 10 and PHONE TRAY. I may get the occasional stray call that gets through, BUT ONLY ONCE!!!!

When I get these I hit the "#" sign about 6 - 8 times quickly.  Normally it confuses the automated system and it logs the call as an error and most often removes the number from their call list.  If there is a "person" I normally just say "hold on a second" and put the phone down.  It is hilarious to listen to them shouting "hello, hello, hello" before they finally hang up.

Report by Marilyn, here's what's annoying . . . Long ago Unknown
. . . People who use this as an excuse to whine and vent, rather than as a powerful took to pool information with which to fight back.If all you "do" about the problem is express an opinion -- here -- that the law needs to be changed, you waste your time and ours. If you write to your elected state and federal representatives, then you're closer to being of some use.Think about it:     Right now, two issues on the political stage are Health Care and Torture. Telemarketing, for many, is torture. If you read these posts, and ads on this site which say things like "Harassed by Phone Calls?" you already know this. So, those who are opposed to torture of our enemies should be quite willing to put a stop to this torture.     There is an ever-growing body of evidence that stress causes a large percentage of health issues. Some doctors give estimates as high as (or higher than) 75% of patient visits being caused by stress. So, anyone who has the slightest interest in any kind of health care availability increase or who advocates any -- no matter how narrow -- particular kind of health care program should be eager to reduce stress among the citizenry.     Which means putting far more restrictions on telemarketing. Whether they are opposed to torture or in favor of health care, the conclusion is the same. And, if they claim telemarketing is not torture, check this: Do they give out their personal home telephone numbers? Are those numbers listed in the phone book? If not, then they are hypocrites, and clearly recognize the stressful -- torturing -- nature of telemarketing.------------------Don't whine. Do something. Post useful contact information about whoever calls you. Don't brag about the stupid act of not answering the phone to find out who is doing the harassment. Grow a pair, pick up the phone, ask some questions. Even play along, if that's what it takes. Find out who is making the calls, then post real information of the useful kind here.And, think about filing lawsuits yourself. If the FCC or FTC is able to collect ten billion trillion dollars from a telemarketer for violating the rules, you won't get a single cent. If you sue them, you can get as much as $20,000 per call.While that is an unlikely and difficult goal to reach (IT HAS BEEN DONE.), it's highly likely and not too difficult to collect between $500 and %1,500 per VIOLATION. And, a single call can potentially comprise multiple violations.

I have filed complaints (both FTC/FCC and state) on over 20 numbers in the last couple of months.  Also, I have spoken to the state DA.  The DA's office told me THE DO NOT CALL LIST IS A WASTE OF TIME AND TOTALLY UNENFORCEABLE due to current technology which allows for the creation of fictitious phone numbers.  I keep a rolling list of blocked numbers as my telephone supplier only allows for 12 numbers to be blocked.  I am going to take a suggestion offered in these comments and set automatic forwarding of these calls either to themseleves or another harassing number.

I filed a complaint for this number plus 16 other numbers to the FTC for this Card Services. I have 12 of these numbers blocked on my phone, this is my limit with my phone company. This Company has many numbers they call from including cell phone numbers. All we can do is keep filing these complaints with FTC and maybe they will catch up with this Company. I have been dealing with these people calling me since 2009. I have asked them to take me off their list and all they do is hang up on me. Time to shut this business down. I'm not sure what else to do. I called my Local Phone Co., talked to the Police and filed for the 3rd time on the "Do Not Call List". The Police advised me to file a complaint with the FTC I have done that.  I will be filing a complaint every time they call. So my advice to everyone else is to keep filing a complaint to FTC web site.  https://complaints.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx?panel=2And here is the FTC phone number to file complaints: Phone: Call our toll-free helpline:1-877-FTC-HELP      ( 1-877-382-4357  )TTY: 1-866-653-4261Hope this information helps some of the readers.Lets flood FTC with all these complaints.

This is from an old telemarketer. When you request to be removed from their calling databank,you should also ask for a letter to be mailed to you stating you have been removed. There is also an 800 number each company has for these kind of complaints. Ask for the number and call it if you are bothered again after 72 hours.  If no removal has been done, then report the company to FCC.
Report by TracyD is wrong Long ago Unknown
Maybe this post explains why there are so many illegal telemarketing calls. Someone starts out as an interviewer, comes to imagine they know all the rules, gets promoted . . . and then applies a lot of rules or implements a lot of waivers that don't exist.NOBODY is entitled to call after 9 p.m.ALL COMPANIES OF ANY FORM, CALLING FOR ANY REASON, are required to stop calling when notified of the recipient's request to stop. Some pretend that, unless you say, "Put us on your do not call list." they are not required to do it, but the reality is that they are prohibited from interfering -- in any way -- with a do not call request. That includes pretending the request did not take what they consider to be the "right form."This statement is true: " . . .they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission."And, "If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list..." the company is not in compliance with the law. A supervisor or manager may be able to help, but if the caller can't do it, chances are the company is n't even trying to comply. Part of the confusion stems from the fact that they are allowed to call even people who are on state or national Do Not Call registries. However, ALL entities (Even politicians.) are required to have internal DNC lists. They're also required to immediately put you on their list as soon as you ask.

I used to work for market research companies as an interviewer, market research survey calls are not included in the law by the National DNC list, so you may receive calls from market research, they also do not have time restrictions like solicitors since they are not selling anything, companies like Gallup however try to keep it no later than 9 PM.  Most research companies also can disposition a call as Do Not Call, and have the number on a list, but not all of them do this, they are also not required to do so, Gallup and MSR out of Omaha however do, Its annoying, they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission.  If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list...ask for a supervisor or manager...they'll normally get you on something or remove the number from the current program database.  I hope this helps.

The government/DNC won’t help you; as a matter of fact they are the ones that are giving your number out.  What was supposed to help you has turned into a weapon against you.  Each month a new list of DNC numbers are released by your ever faithful government to “help” stop telemarketing phone calls but at the same time they make it available to anybody that wants a current list of WORKING NUMBERS!  Guess what by listing your number on the DNC you have just given it to every scam artist out there that has enough balls to register with the DNC.  Your government is too stupid, lazy or calloused to look right under their nose.  Remove your number from the DNC and in two months your scam callers will stop calling (though it may increase local calls).  If you don’t want to remove your number I suggest getting a call blocking device of some type.  I currently have 79 area codes blocked and at least 13 local numbers blocked and I still get repeated calls.  I love getting repeat calls because when my call blocking devices kick in I know it’s costing these morons money because the devices pick up and then hang up and I never hear the phone ring.   Get the last laugh on these jack***es by blocking them not just by complaining.  Complaining won’t stop the calls, -- Nothing Will – but you can silence your phone if you want to. The devices/programs I use are DIGITONE CALL BLOCKER 10 and PHONE TRAY. I may get the occasional stray call that gets through, BUT ONLY ONCE!!!!

Report by Marilyn, here's what's annoying . . . Long ago Unknown
. . . People who use this as an excuse to whine and vent, rather than as a powerful took to pool information with which to fight back.If all you "do" about the problem is express an opinion -- here -- that the law needs to be changed, you waste your time and ours. If you write to your elected state and federal representatives, then you're closer to being of some use.Think about it:     Right now, two issues on the political stage are Health Care and Torture. Telemarketing, for many, is torture. If you read these posts, and ads on this site which say things like "Harassed by Phone Calls?" you already know this. So, those who are opposed to torture of our enemies should be quite willing to put a stop to this torture.     There is an ever-growing body of evidence that stress causes a large percentage of health issues. Some doctors give estimates as high as (or higher than) 75% of patient visits being caused by stress. So, anyone who has the slightest interest in any kind of health care availability increase or who advocates any -- no matter how narrow -- particular kind of health care program should be eager to reduce stress among the citizenry.     Which means putting far more restrictions on telemarketing. Whether they are opposed to torture or in favor of health care, the conclusion is the same. And, if they claim telemarketing is not torture, check this: Do they give out their personal home telephone numbers? Are those numbers listed in the phone book? If not, then they are hypocrites, and clearly recognize the stressful -- torturing -- nature of telemarketing.------------------Don't whine. Do something. Post useful contact information about whoever calls you. Don't brag about the stupid act of not answering the phone to find out who is doing the harassment. Grow a pair, pick up the phone, ask some questions. Even play along, if that's what it takes. Find out who is making the calls, then post real information of the useful kind here.And, think about filing lawsuits yourself. If the FCC or FTC is able to collect ten billion trillion dollars from a telemarketer for violating the rules, you won't get a single cent. If you sue them, you can get as much as $20,000 per call.While that is an unlikely and difficult goal to reach (IT HAS BEEN DONE.), it's highly likely and not too difficult to collect between $500 and %1,500 per VIOLATION. And, a single call can potentially comprise multiple violations.

According to the national DNC registry, a company has 31 days to add you from their do not call list. I recently put a post on facebook that anyone who has signed up for the DNC should go back and read it in it's entirety. Many organizations are exempt, but all must put you on their internal DNC list if the caller requests it. (again withing 31 days)

So true.  They're collecting information for some company.  Whether that data gets sold or not, it *could* be sold to more telemarketers and junk mailers.  But, if they have more information about you, your data record will be more valuable to other telemarketers and junk mailers.  Best thing is to do not give out anything.  Funny thing is, peope that are not in the know will believe that it will prevent more calls from that one company, but what people have to realize that companies doesn't just collect information for nothing.

I'm sorry, but telemarketers I talk to generally hang up the moment I mention "do Not Call", the word "list" doesn't seem to get heard. I'd never get more words in to ask for a confirmation letter. If we tweek the law a bit and not only fine the company for violating the do not call list but the worker for not following the federal guidelines in removing phone numbers from lists, maybe it would work.

Recently my phone company, Broadband went out of business and I had to find another one. I found an over the internet phone company (Phone.com) and boy, am I happy. I live in a retirement community and we were getting 8 to 10  calls a day.With my old service, I could not block any calls. But with this new service, I can block all of them. You should see my block list. All is quite now and I am at peace, plus the new service only cost me $9.88 a month, plus taxes. To say that I am happy is an under statement. If you have no blocking or limited blocking, maybe you should go on line and check out this service. All you need is high speed internet connection.

I filed a complaint for this number plus 16 other numbers to the FTC for this Card Services. I have 12 of these numbers blocked on my phone, this is my limit with my phone company. This Company has many numbers they call from including cell phone numbers. All we can do is keep filing these complaints with FTC and maybe they will catch up with this Company. I have been dealing with these people calling me since 2009. I have asked them to take me off their list and all they do is hang up on me. Time to shut this business down. I'm not sure what else to do. I called my Local Phone Co., talked to the Police and filed for the 3rd time on the "Do Not Call List". The Police advised me to file a complaint with the FTC I have done that.  I will be filing a complaint every time they call. So my advice to everyone else is to keep filing a complaint to FTC web site.  https://complaints.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx?panel=2And here is the FTC phone number to file complaints: Phone: Call our toll-free helpline:1-877-FTC-HELP      ( 1-877-382-4357  )TTY: 1-866-653-4261Hope this information helps some of the readers.Lets flood FTC with all these complaints.

This is from an old telemarketer. When you request to be removed from their calling databank,you should also ask for a letter to be mailed to you stating you have been removed. There is also an 800 number each company has for these kind of complaints. Ask for the number and call it if you are bothered again after 72 hours.  If no removal has been done, then report the company to FCC.
Report by TracyD is wrong Long ago Unknown
Maybe this post explains why there are so many illegal telemarketing calls. Someone starts out as an interviewer, comes to imagine they know all the rules, gets promoted . . . and then applies a lot of rules or implements a lot of waivers that don't exist.NOBODY is entitled to call after 9 p.m.ALL COMPANIES OF ANY FORM, CALLING FOR ANY REASON, are required to stop calling when notified of the recipient's request to stop. Some pretend that, unless you say, "Put us on your do not call list." they are not required to do it, but the reality is that they are prohibited from interfering -- in any way -- with a do not call request. That includes pretending the request did not take what they consider to be the "right form."This statement is true: " . . .they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission."And, "If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list..." the company is not in compliance with the law. A supervisor or manager may be able to help, but if the caller can't do it, chances are the company is n't even trying to comply. Part of the confusion stems from the fact that they are allowed to call even people who are on state or national Do Not Call registries. However, ALL entities (Even politicians.) are required to have internal DNC lists. They're also required to immediately put you on their list as soon as you ask.

I used to work for market research companies as an interviewer, market research survey calls are not included in the law by the National DNC list, so you may receive calls from market research, they also do not have time restrictions like solicitors since they are not selling anything, companies like Gallup however try to keep it no later than 9 PM.  Most research companies also can disposition a call as Do Not Call, and have the number on a list, but not all of them do this, they are also not required to do so, Gallup and MSR out of Omaha however do, Its annoying, they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission.  If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list...ask for a supervisor or manager...they'll normally get you on something or remove the number from the current program database.  I hope this helps.

The government/DNC won’t help you; as a matter of fact they are the ones that are giving your number out.  What was supposed to help you has turned into a weapon against you.  Each month a new list of DNC numbers are released by your ever faithful government to “help” stop telemarketing phone calls but at the same time they make it available to anybody that wants a current list of WORKING NUMBERS!  Guess what by listing your number on the DNC you have just given it to every scam artist out there that has enough balls to register with the DNC.  Your government is too stupid, lazy or calloused to look right under their nose.  Remove your number from the DNC and in two months your scam callers will stop calling (though it may increase local calls).  If you don’t want to remove your number I suggest getting a call blocking device of some type.  I currently have 79 area codes blocked and at least 13 local numbers blocked and I still get repeated calls.  I love getting repeat calls because when my call blocking devices kick in I know it’s costing these morons money because the devices pick up and then hang up and I never hear the phone ring.   Get the last laugh on these jack***es by blocking them not just by complaining.  Complaining won’t stop the calls, -- Nothing Will – but you can silence your phone if you want to. The devices/programs I use are DIGITONE CALL BLOCKER 10 and PHONE TRAY. I may get the occasional stray call that gets through, BUT ONLY ONCE!!!!

Report by Marilyn, here's what's annoying . . . Long ago Unknown
. . . People who use this as an excuse to whine and vent, rather than as a powerful took to pool information with which to fight back.If all you "do" about the problem is express an opinion -- here -- that the law needs to be changed, you waste your time and ours. If you write to your elected state and federal representatives, then you're closer to being of some use.Think about it:     Right now, two issues on the political stage are Health Care and Torture. Telemarketing, for many, is torture. If you read these posts, and ads on this site which say things like "Harassed by Phone Calls?" you already know this. So, those who are opposed to torture of our enemies should be quite willing to put a stop to this torture.     There is an ever-growing body of evidence that stress causes a large percentage of health issues. Some doctors give estimates as high as (or higher than) 75% of patient visits being caused by stress. So, anyone who has the slightest interest in any kind of health care availability increase or who advocates any -- no matter how narrow -- particular kind of health care program should be eager to reduce stress among the citizenry.     Which means putting far more restrictions on telemarketing. Whether they are opposed to torture or in favor of health care, the conclusion is the same. And, if they claim telemarketing is not torture, check this: Do they give out their personal home telephone numbers? Are those numbers listed in the phone book? If not, then they are hypocrites, and clearly recognize the stressful -- torturing -- nature of telemarketing.------------------Don't whine. Do something. Post useful contact information about whoever calls you. Don't brag about the stupid act of not answering the phone to find out who is doing the harassment. Grow a pair, pick up the phone, ask some questions. Even play along, if that's what it takes. Find out who is making the calls, then post real information of the useful kind here.And, think about filing lawsuits yourself. If the FCC or FTC is able to collect ten billion trillion dollars from a telemarketer for violating the rules, you won't get a single cent. If you sue them, you can get as much as $20,000 per call.While that is an unlikely and difficult goal to reach (IT HAS BEEN DONE.), it's highly likely and not too difficult to collect between $500 and %1,500 per VIOLATION. And, a single call can potentially comprise multiple violations.

Because of limitations in the jurisdiction of the FTC and FCC, calls from or on behalf of political organizations, charities, and telephone surveyors would still be permitted, as would calls from companies with which you have an existing business relationship, or those to whom you’ve provided express agreement in writing to receive their calls. However, if you ask a company with which you have an existing business relationship to place your number on its own do-not-call list, it must honor your request.  You should keep a record of the date you make the request."   (www.donotcall.gov).

We have gotten numerous calls fom Republican surveys.We have been flooded with mail too. This was a survey about the economy, and I d not know which party called, or if it was independent.
Report by Carl Long ago Unknown
Both parties do this.You're getting calls from Democrats, because the data they have on you makes them think there's a good chance you'll vote Democratic. It's usually because of the town you live in. During the special US Senate election in January 2010, I got a LOT of calls and they were almost all from Scott Brown, because my town is mostly Republican. A friend of mine in a wealthy town got calls only from the Democratic candidate.

According to the national DNC registry, a company has 31 days to add you from their do not call list. I recently put a post on facebook that anyone who has signed up for the DNC should go back and read it in it's entirety. Many organizations are exempt, but all must put you on their internal DNC list if the caller requests it. (again withing 31 days)

So true.  They're collecting information for some company.  Whether that data gets sold or not, it *could* be sold to more telemarketers and junk mailers.  But, if they have more information about you, your data record will be more valuable to other telemarketers and junk mailers.  Best thing is to do not give out anything.  Funny thing is, peope that are not in the know will believe that it will prevent more calls from that one company, but what people have to realize that companies doesn't just collect information for nothing.

I'm sorry, but telemarketers I talk to generally hang up the moment I mention "do Not Call", the word "list" doesn't seem to get heard. I'd never get more words in to ask for a confirmation letter. If we tweek the law a bit and not only fine the company for violating the do not call list but the worker for not following the federal guidelines in removing phone numbers from lists, maybe it would work.

Recently my phone company, Broadband went out of business and I had to find another one. I found an over the internet phone company (Phone.com) and boy, am I happy. I live in a retirement community and we were getting 8 to 10  calls a day.With my old service, I could not block any calls. But with this new service, I can block all of them. You should see my block list. All is quite now and I am at peace, plus the new service only cost me $9.88 a month, plus taxes. To say that I am happy is an under statement. If you have no blocking or limited blocking, maybe you should go on line and check out this service. All you need is high speed internet connection.

I have filed complaints (both FTC/FCC and state) on over 20 numbers in the last couple of months.  Also, I have spoken to the state DA.  The DA's office told me THE DO NOT CALL LIST IS A WASTE OF TIME AND TOTALLY UNENFORCEABLE due to current technology which allows for the creation of fictitious phone numbers.  I keep a rolling list of blocked numbers as my telephone supplier only allows for 12 numbers to be blocked.  I am going to take a suggestion offered in these comments and set automatic forwarding of these calls either to themseleves or another harassing number.

I filed a complaint for this number plus 16 other numbers to the FTC for this Card Services. I have 12 of these numbers blocked on my phone, this is my limit with my phone company. This Company has many numbers they call from including cell phone numbers. All we can do is keep filing these complaints with FTC and maybe they will catch up with this Company. I have been dealing with these people calling me since 2009. I have asked them to take me off their list and all they do is hang up on me. Time to shut this business down. I'm not sure what else to do. I called my Local Phone Co., talked to the Police and filed for the 3rd time on the "Do Not Call List". The Police advised me to file a complaint with the FTC I have done that.  I will be filing a complaint every time they call. So my advice to everyone else is to keep filing a complaint to FTC web site.  https://complaints.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx?panel=2And here is the FTC phone number to file complaints: Phone: Call our toll-free helpline:1-877-FTC-HELP      ( 1-877-382-4357  )TTY: 1-866-653-4261Hope this information helps some of the readers.Lets flood FTC with all these complaints.

This is from an old telemarketer. When you request to be removed from their calling databank,you should also ask for a letter to be mailed to you stating you have been removed. There is also an 800 number each company has for these kind of complaints. Ask for the number and call it if you are bothered again after 72 hours.  If no removal has been done, then report the company to FCC.
Report by TracyD is wrong Long ago Unknown
Maybe this post explains why there are so many illegal telemarketing calls. Someone starts out as an interviewer, comes to imagine they know all the rules, gets promoted . . . and then applies a lot of rules or implements a lot of waivers that don't exist.NOBODY is entitled to call after 9 p.m.ALL COMPANIES OF ANY FORM, CALLING FOR ANY REASON, are required to stop calling when notified of the recipient's request to stop. Some pretend that, unless you say, "Put us on your do not call list." they are not required to do it, but the reality is that they are prohibited from interfering -- in any way -- with a do not call request. That includes pretending the request did not take what they consider to be the "right form."This statement is true: " . . .they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission."And, "If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list..." the company is not in compliance with the law. A supervisor or manager may be able to help, but if the caller can't do it, chances are the company is n't even trying to comply. Part of the confusion stems from the fact that they are allowed to call even people who are on state or national Do Not Call registries. However, ALL entities (Even politicians.) are required to have internal DNC lists. They're also required to immediately put you on their list as soon as you ask.

I used to work for market research companies as an interviewer, market research survey calls are not included in the law by the National DNC list, so you may receive calls from market research, they also do not have time restrictions like solicitors since they are not selling anything, companies like Gallup however try to keep it no later than 9 PM.  Most research companies also can disposition a call as Do Not Call, and have the number on a list, but not all of them do this, they are also not required to do so, Gallup and MSR out of Omaha however do, Its annoying, they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission.  If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list...ask for a supervisor or manager...they'll normally get you on something or remove the number from the current program database.  I hope this helps.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which prohibits debt collectors from using abusive, unfair, or deceptive practices to collect from you.Under the FDCPA, a debt collector is someone who regularly collects debts owed to others. This includes collection agencies, lawyers who collect debts on a regular basis, and companies that buy delinquent debts and then try to collect them.Here are some questions and answers about your rights under the Act.What types of debts are covered?The Act covers personal, family, and household debts, including money you owe on a personal credit card account, an auto loan, a medical bill, and your mortgage. The FDCPA doesn’t cover debts you incurred to run a business.Can a debt collector contact me any time or any place? No. A debt collector may not contact you at inconvenient times or places, such as before 8 in the morning or after 9 at night, unless you agree to it. And collectors may not contact you at work if they’re told (orally or in writing) that you’re not allowed to get calls there.How can I stop a debt collector from contacting me?If a collector contacts you about a debt, you may want to talk to them at least once to see if you can resolve the matter – even if you don’t think you owe the debt, can’t repay it immediately, or think that the collector is contacting you by mistake. If you decide after contacting the debt collector that you don’t want the collector to contact you again, tell the collector – in writing – to stop contacting you. Here’s how to do that:Make a copy of your letter. Send the original by certified mail, and pay for a “return receipt” so you’ll be able to document what the collector received. Once the collector receives your letter, they may not contact you again, with two exceptions: a collector can contact you to tell you there will be no further contact or to let you know that they or the creditor intend to take a specific action, like filing a lawsuit. Sending such a letter to a debt collector you owe money to does not get rid of the debt, but it should stop the contact. The creditor or the debt collector still can sue you to collect the debt. Can a debt collector contact anyone else about my debt?If an attorney is representing you about the debt, the debt collector must contact the attorney, rather than you. If you don’t have an attorney, a collector may contact other people – but only to find out your address, your home phone number, and where you work. Collectors usually are prohibited from contacting third parties more than once. Other than to obtain this location information about you, a debt collector generally is not permitted to discuss your debt with anyone other than you, your spouse, or your attorney.What does the debt collector have to tell me about the debt? Every collector must send you a written “validation notice” telling you how much money you owe within five days after they first contact you. This notice also must include the name of the creditor to whom you owe the money, and how to proceed if you don’t think you owe the money. Can a debt collector keep contacting me if I don’t think I owe any money? If you send the debt collector a letter stating that you don’t owe any or all of the money, or asking for verification of the debt, that collector must stop contacting you. You have to send that letter within 30 days after you receive the validation notice. But a collector can begin contacting you again if it sends you written verification of the debt, like a copy of a bill for the amount you owe.What practices are off limits for debt collectors?Harassment. Debt collectors may not harass, oppress, or abuse you or any third parties they contact. For example, they may not:     use threats of violence or harm;     publish a list of names of people who refuse to pay their debts (but they can give this information to the credit reporting companies);     use obscene or profane language; or     repeatedly use the phone to annoy someone. False statements. Debt collectors may not lie when they are trying to collect a debt. For example, they may not:     falsely claim that they are attorneys or government representatives;     falsely claim that you have committed a crime;     falsely represent that they operate or work for a credit reporting company;     misrepresent the amount you owe;     indicate that papers they send you are legal forms if they aren’t; or     indicate that papers they send to you aren’t legal forms if they are. Debt collectors also are prohibited from saying that:     you will be arrested if you don’t pay your debt;     they’ll seize, garnish, attach, or sell your property or wages unless they are permitted by law to take the action and intend to do so; or     legal action will be taken against you, if doing so would be illegal or if they don’t intend to take the action. Debt collectors may not:     give false credit information about you to anyone, including a credit reporting company;     send you anything that looks like an official document from a court or government agency if it isn’t; or     use a false company name. Unfair practices. Debt collectors may not engage in unfair practices when they try to collect a debt. For example, they may not:     try to collect any interest, fee, or other charge on top of the amount you owe unless the contract that created your debt – or your state law – allows the charge;     deposit a post-dated check early;     take or threaten to take your property unless it can be done legally; or     contact you by postcard. Can I control which debts my payments apply to? Yes. If a debt collector is trying to collect more than one debt from you, the collector must apply any payment you make to the debt you select. Equally important, a debt collector may not apply a payment to a debt you don’t think you owe.Can a debt collector garnish my bank account or my wages?If you don’t pay a debt, a creditor or its debt collector generally can sue you to collect. If they win, the court will enter a judgment against you. The judgment states the amount of money you owe, and allows the creditor or collector to get a garnishment order against you, directing a third party, like your bank, to turn over funds from your account to pay the debt. Wage garnishment happens when your employer withholds part of your compensation to pay your debts. Your wages usually can be garnished only as the result of a court order. Don’t ignore a lawsuit summons. If you do, you lose the opportunity to fight a wage garnishment.Can federal benefits be garnished?Many federal benefits are exempt from garnishment, including:     Social Security Benefits     Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits     Veterans’ Benefits     Civil Service and Federal Retirement and Disability Benefits     Service Members’ Pay     Military Annuities and Survivors’ Benefits     Student Assistance     Railroad Retirement Benefits     Merchant Seamen Wages     Longshoremen’s and Harbor Workers’ Death and Disability Benefits     Foreign Service Retirement and Disability Benefits     Compensation for Injury, Death, or Detention of Employees of U.S. Contractors Outside the U.S.     Federal Emergency Management Agency Federal Disaster Assistance But federal benefits may be garnished under certain circumstances, including to pay delinquent taxes, alimony, child support, or student loans. Do I have any recourse if I think a debt collector has violated the law? You have the right to sue a collector in a state or federal court within one year from the date the law was violated. If you win, the judge can require the collector to pay you for any damages you can prove you suffered because of the illegal collection practices, like lost wages and medical bills. The judge can require the debt collector to pay you up to $1,000, even if you can’t prove that you suffered actual damages. You also can be reimbursed for your attorney’s fees and court costs. A group of people also may sue a debt collector as part of a class action lawsuit and recover money for damages up to $500,000, or one percent of the collector’s net worth, whichever amount is lower. Even if a debt collector violates the FDCPA in trying to collect a debt, the debt does not go away if you owe it.What should I do if a debt collector sues me?If a debt collector files a lawsuit against you to collect a debt, respond to the lawsuit, either personally or through your lawyer, by the date specified in the court papers to preserve your rights. Where do I report a debt collector for an alleged violation?Report any problems you have with a debt collector to your state Attorney General’s office (www.naag.org) and the Federal Trade Commission (www.ftc.gov). Many states have their own debt collection laws that are different from the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Your Attorney General’s office can help you determine your rights under your state’s law.For More InformationTo learn more about debt collection and other credit-related issues, visit www.ftc.gov/credit and MyMoney.gov, the U.S. government’s portal to financial education.The FTC works for the consumer to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices in the marketplace and to provide information to help consumers spot, stop, and avoid them.

If you fall behind in paying your creditors — or if you dispute the legitimacy of a debt — a debt collector may contact you.“Time-barred” debts are debts so old they are beyond the point at which a creditor or debt collector may sue you to collect. State law varies as to when a creditor or debt collector may no longer sue to collect: in most states, the statute of limitations period on debts is between 3 and 10 years; in some states, the period is longer. Check with your State Attorney General’s Office to determine when a debt is considered time-barred in your state. You can find contact information for your State Attorney General at www.naag.org. Federal law imposes limitations on how debt collectors can collect debts, including time-barred debts. Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), a “debt collector” generally is any person or organization that regularly collects debts owed to others. The term includes lawyers who collect debts for others on a regular basis, but it does not include creditors collecting their own debts.The FDCPA prohibits debt collectors from engaging in any unfair, deceptive, or abusive practices while collecting debts. It does not erase any legitimate debt that you owe. To learn more about your rights under the FDCPA, click on www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/credit/fdc.htm.Collecting Time-Barred DebtsMost courts that have addressed the issue have ruled that the FDCPA does not prohibit debt collectors from trying to collect time-barred debts, as long as they do not sue or threaten to sue you for the debt. If a debt collector sues you to collect a time-barred debt, you can have the suit dismissed by letting the court or judge know the debt is, indeed, time-barred.Whether a time-barred debt — or any debt for that matter — can appear on your credit report depends on how long the debt has been delinquent: debts that have been delinquent more than seven years cannot appear on your credit report, with certain exceptions. In addition, a debt collector may not try to collect a debt that has been discharged in bankruptcy, no matter when it was incurred. To learn more about credit reporting, click on www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/credit/fcra.htm.Contact with CollectorsCan a debt collector continue to contact you about a time-barred debt you don’t think you owe? According to the law, if you send the debt collector a letter stating that you do not owe some or all of the money within 30 days after you receive written notice of a debt, the collector must stop trying to collect until you’ve been given written verification of the debt, like a copy of the bill for the amount you supposedly owe. The collector can renew collection activities once you’ve gotten proof of the debt.You can stop debt collectors from contacting you about any debt, regardless of whether you owe it, by writing a letter telling them to stop contacting you. Once the collector gets your letter, it may not contact you again — except to say there will be no further contact or to let you know that the collector or creditor intends to take some specific action. Sending a letter doesn’t absolve you of the debt if you actually owe it; the debt collector or creditor still could sue you for the debt.Future Collection EffortsThe best way to protect yourself from future collection on any disputed or partially settled debt is to get a form or letter from the creditor or collector that releases you from further obligation. To make sure the release is valid, you may want to consult an attorney. If you believe that a debt collector violated the law, you have the right to sue in a state or federal court within a year from the date the law was violated. If you win, you may recover money for the damages you suffered, plus an additional amount up to $1,000. You also may recover court costs and attorney’s fees. You also may want to report any problems you have with a debt collector to your State Attorney General and to the Federal Trade Commission.The FTC works to prevent fraudulent, deceptive and unfair business practices in the marketplace and to provide information to help consumers spot, stop and avoid them.

Recieved the same phone call. Claims to work for a shipping company that does not exist.
