FTC via YouTube - Complying with Do Not Call
For a long time I have had an unlisted telephone number and registered with the FTC's 'Do Not Call List' and when I was forced to move (because LAX wanted the property I was living on) and when I got a new telephone number I registered it and also am paying the monthly extra fee to the phone computer to have it unlisted.

But this new telephone number for me had belonged to a business and so I received some calls in the beginning, but they tapered off in frequency. However, lately, I have been getting more calls to that company and also other calls but looking for me.

This is a video from the official US government YouTube channel.

Complying with Do Not Call

If you market your products or services by phone -- or if someone has hired you to handle their telemarketing for them -- it's a good idea to know about the Do Not Call provisions of the Telemarketing Sales Rule and how to comply.

[I don't know whose at fault - YouTube or LiveJournal - But embedding videos is getting to be a pain in the rear. The above code does not look right in preview mode. So I'll try this also.]



[It still does not look right in preview mode, but at least the right side is not cropped.]

How funny!

This is something that everyone should know about. It seems to me that the DoNotCallList thing has a bunch of exclusions. Any company that called you prior to calling you when you applied to the DoNotCallList can still call you, cause technically, they have legally called you before in the past 18 months. Who knows, before you applied to the DoNotCallList, there were probably at least a dozen companies that called you. They might have affiliates that belong to that same company that may still call you, right at this very moment.

The DoNotCallList has too many exclusions, that's what all this boils down to.

It's funny though because my grandma is on the DoNotCallList, but yet, there are companies that still call her on the phone. She used to run her own business and I betcha that those companies might be companies that she worked for even.
