How Can I Get Annoying Telemarketers to Stop Calling Me? |

Telemarketers are annoying, and you may be fed up with them calling you all of the time. Your aggravation with these calls may have led you to complain and vent your frustrations to your friends and family, but they are not to whom you should be making your complaints. Why? They may be able to empathize with you, but they won’t be able to make the calls stop. Therefore you need to take more constructive actions to have your complaints heard if you truly want to do something about telemarketers.First things first, you need to make sure all of your phone numbers (landline and cell phone) are registered with the National Do Not Call Registry (NDNCR). This will help to reduce the number of telemarketing calls you receive, and also enable you to make formal complaints when your privacy rights have been violated. To learn more about your rights as a phone consumer, visit the NDNCR website or read up on the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).Despite being registered with the Do Not Call List, you should still take it upon yourself to ask every telemarketer who phones to take you off their internal do-not-call-list. By law all telemarketing firms are permitted to have an internal list and legally must comply with your request to be placed on it.If a telemarketing firm does not stop calling you, even though you have filed an official complaint with the NDNCR, it’s time to take an extra step and publicly complain about this company or individual on a caller complaints site. This is a website designed to bring phone consumers together to vent their frustrations by sharing their experiences with irritating and relentless telemarketing or other unwanted calls.While you should file a complaint about your own problem solicitor, you should first enter the phone number of the caller into the query box on the calling complaints site you choose to see if any other ill remarks were made regarding the same number. You will find that the more negative comments are made against a disreputable telemarketing company, the better chance there is to stop telemarketers and annoying phone calls as their reputation becomes soiled.
