Comments:I am so tired of telemarketers being able to do what they want, when they want to whomever they want. They have the right to say what they want to but I also have the right night to listen and to not be contacted by them if I so choose. First consumers have to be on the Do Not Call list. Next, telemarketers can leave a message if they want. Also, they can already call you if they say they have a 'survey' for you. I think it's nonsense and allowing 'businesses' that cannot do business unless they bother me and invade my privacy is a business we can do without. In my opinion, if a company wants to contact a consumer, they should have a legitimate reason to do so. To make sure that it is wanted communication, they should need consent from the consumer, in writing.
