What kind of alien technology do telemarketers have? They seem to be able to detect the moment that you sit down to dinner – and then the phone rings. Grrr.
I guess telemarketers have a tough time. Caller display means that people can ignore calls from 800 numbers, for example. And the new do not call list that comes into play at the end of September means that they will need to subscribe to the national DNCL list – this could cost as much as $11,280 a year. Consumers can find out more about this list on DNCL web site.
One thing we can expect is a lot less calls during dinner. But the marketing department will find another way to get to us.
