Your relaxing at home & the phone rings..when you pick up the phone…no ones there…It is a machine set up see if a live person picks up.
When someone does answer they commences to give you the hard sell.
They get your name from sucker list from having bought a particular item or from cookies that pick up and selectively gear the for sale item to your commuter viewing.The correct thing that we call do when making a phone call is we identify ourselves to whom we calling”This is Don Lerman can I speak to Joe Smith They don’t do that..you can expect something like this”Mr.Lerman”? Who is this I reply back?.Mr Don Lerman?..who is this I say once more.Mr Lerman.They may say that they are your chimney cleaner….At that point I hang up.
Can it be put to an end? Yes it can the technology is at hand..many years ago.it was virtually impossible to find out who’s calling.The technogy was available but the phone company never fitted their systems with the stuff that would do he job.When they call and you pick up I urge everyone never confirm your name …talk in a foreign accent…be blunt and get them.off your line quickly..never ever engage them in conversation or even acknowledge your true name or address.If they feel that you Mr Joe Smith is no longer is connected with your number than your number no longer has a value to them
We need new legislation and a support team from our providers right now
This my friends in the trade is known as Planned Obolesesance..A company will only give the public new technological feature when they are forced to.It will be out in given in dribs and drabs & only when they want to have the jump on their competitor..
If you don’t answer these phone calls ..they will call and call until you do.When you do no ones there..
So if they want they can stop it..why don’t don’t they stop it now? Money they are making money from these calls that’s why .Call or phone your municipality …State and Congressional representatives to have new laws enacted to stop this insanity once & for all.
