I very rarely get telemarketing phone calls, but as if they knew that the national "do not call" list was starting, I received two telemarketing phone calls Thursday evening. Hopefully, that won't be happening much longer, as the much talked about national "do not call" anti-telemarketing list is now open for business. Of course, there will be plenty of telemarketers who will ignore the list, or figure out ways to exploit loopholes. I wouldn't be surprised to hear each telemarketing call begin with a political message, since political telemarketing is still legal due to politicians who always seem to exempt themselves from the laws they put on everyone else. There are also a number of scams going around pretending to be the national do not call list (and sometimes charging to get on their list). So, you should be sure to register from the official DoNotCall.gov website, so that your phones will (hopefully) be telemarketer free as of October 1.
