How many telemarketer phone calls do you get in a day?Page 1 of 1    
I get 6-12 a day, no joke. What is the best way to "shut them down"? Please don't refer a technique that costs money. I can already imagine someone recommending me spend money on some application or program to keep this from occuring. Actually I am interested, are there ways to keep telemarketers from calling that cost money? Is it illegal for telemarketers to leave messages on your voicemail? Im guessing it is, but I don't know. Do telemarketers make you miserable?

I don't get (or accept) any: 1.) I don't answer calls outside my own area code... 2.) I put my phone# on my states "No-Call" list... and 3.) I disabled my voicemail. (friends who need me, know how to get a hold of me). *wipe hands on pants* - Done and Done.

The best way to get off the telemarketer "hit list" is to sign up on the No-call list.

https://www.donotcall.gov/

The next step is; every time you get a telemarketer call add their number to this list:

http://800notes.com/

That site is great for those "unidentified" callers. I use it all the time, there was a particular company that kept calling me about my expired car insurance. Went to that site, added the report, and now that company is gone (more or less).

Hope those links help! I know the telemarketers can be terrible at times, especially in the mid-west.

PS: Not illegal to leave advertising messages. I do want to say it is illegal to use one of those "call machines" (Like Homer had in that one episode of "The Simpsons")

unlist your #+add yourself to the National do not call list. Reject anonumous #'s on your phone service helps also
