Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
The Federal Communications Commission said Wednesday that it will now require telemarketers to obtain written consent from people before placing a robocall.[npr.org...]
The new rules also eliminate a loophole that allowed telemarketers to place robocalls if they had an "established business relationship" with the consumer.
Telemarketers will also have to provide an automated way for people to revoke their consent to the robocall by pressing a few keys on their phone during the call.
Why won't governments ban this intrusive and repulsive practice?
I would be interested to find out if anyone has every bought anything from one of these dodgy robocalls.
