|Title:||Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Request for Comment|
|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:I do not want the FTC to change the Do Not Call Registry system. I know the FCC is considering allowing telemarketers to call and deliver pre-recorded marketing messages". The current system is great and if people want to get sales and marketing calls, they did not sign up to/for the Do Not Call List. These phones calls are an infringement on my rights. If I want to go into a store, or read a circular, or subscribe to a magazine (or other material) I know to expect advertising. Getting a phone call from telemarketers invades my right to privacy; I am not chosing to engage in an advertising or marketing discussion. Lastly, these calls are very distruptive, often times rude, and many times target people who unwillingly give money to "less than worth" organizations. In closing, keep the Do Not Call registry as it is. If someone wants to receive marketing/sales calls, they did not sign up for the restrictions, or can take their phone number off if they change their mind. If you absolutely must allow this, then please ensure that companies only call those that Opt In to this invasion of our privacy. Thank you!
