|Title:||Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Request for Comment|
|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:Pre-recorded messages are still an invasion. I have a phone to communicate with friends and family and conduct my business. I do not want to be contacted by others soliciting business in any way. It is my understanding that the proposed ammendment to the Telemarketing Sales Rule would include those on the Do-Not-Call Registry. This would allow calls to those on the registry. What part of DO-NOT-CALL does not make sense. I don't care whether it is pre-recorded, live, or any other form of contact. If I'm on the registry, I DON'T WANT TO BE CALLED. Don't call, don't let computers call, do not call at all. I understand that these are companies with which I may have had a business relationship in the past. If I need their services again, I will contact them again. I do not wish to be called. I do not want regulations changed to make it easier for them to call me. I understand that the change is being proposed to bring the FTC rules in line with the FCC. This is wrong. The FCC rule is what needs to be changed. If they are allowing prerecorded messages now, they need to change the rule to take it away. A rule change that I would propose is to make it illegal to make any phone sollicitation unless I have specifically permitted a company to make contact.
