|Title:||Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Request for Comment|
|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:I find it rather outrageous that the FTC is considering allowing telemarketers to send pre-recorded messages to the numbers listed in the Do Not Call Registry. Those of us who are in the Registry are there because we don't want ANY calls from telemarketers; we don't care whether the call comes from a real person or not. And, no, we don't care that this ammendment applies only to companies with which we have done business. We don't believe that any company should be allowed to call us for sales purposes unless WE specifically give that company permission. We certainly don't care about THEIR bottom line or profit margin -- that's not our problem. We just want to left alone. We want to be able to answer the phone, reasonably certain that whoever is calling is someone with whom we might to talk. Not someone trying to sell us something and certainly not a machine trying to sell us something.
