Mark Pilgrim – How to deal with telemarketers effectively

[Original Link] “Months go by and I don’t receive any telemarketing calls, but I just got off the phone with the nice people at Precision Telemarketing, who got my name and unlisted phone number from Time Warner Cable (against my explicit directions upon signup, and their explicit promises) in order to try to sell me a subscription for TV Guide. I used the JunkBusters anti-telemarketing script to tell them to put me on their “do not call” list. In accordance with the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991, Precision Telemarketing will not be calling me again on behalf of TV Guide or any other company for the next 10 years.”
