No More ROBO Calls

Posted on/at 10:19 PM by Sparky

New Rule Prohibiting Unwanted "Robocalls" to Take Effect on September 1

Beginning September 1, 2009, prerecorded commercial telemarketing calls to consumers – commonly known as robocalls – will be prohibited, unless the telemarketer has obtained permission in writing from consumers who want to receive such calls, the Federal Trade Commission announced today.

Well I can say I am glad to see this and I hope that it actually prevents the unwanted calls since I get them on my personal cell phone my work cell phone and my home phone. Most of them have been for a used car warranty,
