Thread Name: BS: Stop Telemarketers Now!
Subject: RE: BS: Stop Telemarketers Now!
For the last few years I have had almost no sales calls because whenever I do get one, I tell them, "Put me on your do not call list." I've signed up today for the national register, which should get rid of the few a year that I still get.

Be aware that it doesn't go into effect for awhile, so when you do get a telemarketer call, tell them, "Put me on your do not call list". This request works for charities and pollsters that you don't want bothering you, also, and the telemarketing registry works only for sales calls.
