    That telephone number you posted is New Energy Entrepreneur from Phoenix, AZ. Sounds like a call center. Hmm, I wonder if the tables were turned......

    Some people think "NO" means "you haven't bugged me enough yet".

I even reported one company to the Better Business Bureau. We are registered with the "No Call List" for all our phones. But they keep on calling. Our cable company must be really hurting because not only do they send us 'promotional specials' in the mail, they have called 3 times in the last week! I'm so tired of all of them. And the new one - sending text messages to my cell phone! There should be a law against all this because I think it's harassment.
    Here is how you do it. Fact - each call made is connected to their social security number. I found this out when I blew my top after a telemarketer called back after I hung up and said "I wasn't finished." Well, I finished them!! I called the company and all hell broke out. So, don't hang up. Keep a little notebook by the phone with a pen. Stop them, ask them to repeat the name of the company. Ask them their name, and if necessary, to spell it. Ask them to tell you again what they are selling. Thank them. Then, tell them, Mr. or Ms. ______, I am now going to instruct you to put me on the NO CALL LIST. This means you must indeed put me on the NO CALL LIST. I have written down your name and the company name. If you, or anyone in the company continues to call, I will then be legally awarded $1500 under the current law. I can use the money. Do you understand?

    They normally will tell you it takes about a month, once they get done stammering. I started doing this, and actually kept a record. No one called back more than once, because if I got another call, I told them the date...oh yeah, put that down, and who called. I only get calls from charities now, and I ask them to please send me money, as my hospital bills are still unpaid.

    This time of the year, the politicians are worse than the telemarketers. I have an answering machine for the home phone, and the message say. Sorry, I am not available. If this is important, call my cell. When I get a call I don't recognize, I don't answer. If it's important, there will be voice mail. I google all numbers, and if it is a telemarketer, I put them on the reject list of my phone. They can call, but it won't even ring.
