Why do telemarketers still call when you are on the state 'No call" list?

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

When the phone rings and I don't know who it is, I answer and find out who they are and then I tell them, "This number is on the Kentucky No Call list" and then I hang up. Anybody else have this problem. I'm sure a lot of you do!!

    I'm in Canada, I get these calls all the time. They like to call during suppertime

    Sometimes they call and ask for the woman who had this number before us and they get upset when I tell them they have the wrong number; been called many things for that. Best one had to be when I "won a trip" and I could take the guy on the phone instead of my husband ha ha
    We're on the Do Not Call List. Doesn't seem to make a difference emoticon

    I have registered with the Do Not Call list--which is not specific to a state as far as I know--many times, and I still get tons of solicitors calls. My son has told me over and over, if there is no one on the line when you first pick it up, hang up, because it is the autodial waiting to kick in that the call has been answered, but I was never able to get past my curiosity about who had called. I have finally gotten fed up and have been just hanging up immediately! Try it--it's empowering!!

    Yep, all the time. When I try to tell the person who called me that I am on the do not call list, they get upset and say something stupid like "I'm not selling anything" or the best one yet "you called me!" emoticon

    I'm just proud I listened to mama, emoticon went to college and got a degree so I don't have to do telemarketing as a profession (job).
