    Yep Im on every "do not call list" I know about.
    Yet...

    I get, at a minnium, 4 a day and at times have had as high as 8 in one day, of Telemarking garbage calls.

    Most of them are wanting to reduce my credit card interest. Garbage!
    You gotta have thousands of $ run up on your card.
    I only have 1 card , pay it off monthly.
    Then I get lots of calls wanting donations.

    What the heck ? What I gotta do to stop this infringement on my privacy?:mad:

    Am I the only one?

    It sure has gotten worse in last year.

    You are not the only one. I get them constantly and also on the DNCL. So much for your government at work! I have heard that they are now off shore and buy a new phone number every week and discontune the last one. It makes it even harder to track down the low down %$###&&*** con artist!

    I get them. I had to call that company back in order to get their unsubscribe button.

    Typically I just ask them to keep holding while I find my card, just to see how much time of theirs I can take up. It's either that or I hand it to my daughter and she tells them about her day.

    Wonder how their auto-call computer handles that one.

    She has started to get self conscious about it. It takes more and more convincing.
