Telemarketing on Cell Phones

Did you get a telemarketer on your cell phone?  That is illegal!  Filing a complaint is quick and easy – done via a Web form from the FCC.  It only takes a couple of minutes to file the complaint.  What you do: Note the time of the call.  Get whatever information you can from the company (but do give out any of your own).  Then go to: https://esupport.fcc.gov/form1088/consumer.do and fill out their Web form.  Done!

I got one from Auto Warranty One today.  I recorded the call, notified them it was a mobile phone, and filed a complaint with the FCC.  The Web form takes 3 or 4 minutes to complete.  But this was my first time so I had to read everything.  Next time I think that I could do it under 2 minutes. 

You can use the form for any complaints relating to Junk Faxes, Junk Calls, Telemarketers, etc.  It can be on your home phone, a mobile phone, a fax, even a pager. 

And all you bastard telemarketers out there: There’s a better way to make money.  Quit being a useless drag on society.  

And why the hell are there so many telemarketers that are native English speakers but I can’t call anyone for support that’s a native speaker?  If telemarketers would take support calls the world would be a better place.

    I use a site like TelemarketerCatcher.com — they have a user-generated list of telemarketer phone numbers. You can tell just from caller id information who is and isn’t a solicitor.
