Legal Loopholes for No Call Lists
A few weeks ago I had a conversation with a young man who called me on my home phone wanting to ask me some survey questions. I answered some of his questions but balked at many of them. He was a nice guy and I had an interesting conversation with him. When I told him that our number was on the "no call" list he informed me that the list only applied to telemarketers and not survey companies. Reminds me of the new "no call" law for cell phones just signed by Missouri governor Jay Nixon. Like other "no call" laws this new Missouri law doesn’t apply to unsolicited charitable or political phone calls and texts. Loopholes like these drive me crazy. Why should telemarketers be exempted from pestering me just because they work for a survey taker, charity or political group? Anybody else bothered by telemarketers or do you just screen your calls?
