Comments:Do not allow any company to legally leave unsolicited messages on my answering machine or my voicemail of any kind. If I want to do business with them, I will contact them. Advertisers need to leave consumers alone while they are at home and they should never, ever be allowed to pester anyone on an individual's cell phone. Further actions of this type will convince me to seek other vendors if and when I have the need for their services. Businesses should learn not to annoy, torment, plague, molest, worry, badger, harry, harass, heckle, persecute, irk, bullyrag, vex, desquiet, grate, beset, bother, tease, nettle, tantalize or ruffle their potential customers. Any business using these uncalled for tactics on an answering machine or voice mail should be penalized in a court of law to undo any possible profit earned in such a manner.
