Comments:I OPPOSE any loosening of restrictions on unsolicited calls. I am on the DNC list and yet I still get several calls a month from one "non-profit" or another. My credit is fine thank you and I don't need some fraud trying to "repair" it! "Telemarketer" is just another name for "con artist" and it is the job of the government to stop them. There is nothing "legitimate" about what they do. If they had real products they would advertise and sell them the same way as everyone else: out in the open. As it is, they interrupt your life to try to pawn off some overpriced junk you don't want. They effectively come into your home, uninvited, and try to mug you. As far as I am concerned, telemarketing is a crime the government still largely ignores. Just because I once bought something from someone or filled out a questionaire, that doesn't mean I then want their cousin calling about some land in Florida or a bridge in New York! Thank you, -- Peter.
