Let’s try to review the facts and take a look at some important guidelines set by the Federal Communications Commission on telemarketing and autodialers.
1. Telemarketers are REQUIRED to give his or her name, company, telephone number or address where he or she can be contacted. You should expect these details on the initial part of the call.
In the tellows Call Guideline, you are given a script with a set of questions which you can use to verify information about the telemarketer.
2. No phone solicitation/ telemarketing is allowed before 8 am or after 9 pm.
3. As soon as you ask the telemarketer to include you in the do-not-call list, they should comply and you shouldn’t be receiving any more calls from them! At least for the next 5 years (read below).
4. The telemarketer must honor your do-not-call request for five years and you must repeat your request once you get the same call after the period.
