You know how it was with constant calling of those telemarketers? Never ending hassles. Everyday, around 6:00 P.M. those salesperson, or credit card staffs call to sale something, even you refused it, they tried to find a way to convince you. Sometimes, I just hung up on them with those nonsense. I just wonder if there is anyway I can avoid those telemarketers? Any suggestion that I don't want to hear their calls again?

maybe you are referring to me haha...i was a telemarketer before from a financial institutions. we are offering personal cash loans and credit card lines. i personally don't know where the company get such a long list of different people for us to call one by one. and as a telemarketer, there is no specific time of the day a client would receive calls that comes from us. in any case that you've been one of my potential client then i'm sorry hehe...(that is if your from the Philippines ).

hello, telemarketers can be a pain calling all hours of the days and night. go to the national do not call registry gives you a choice about whether to receive telemarking calls at home. most telemarketers should not call your # once it has been in the registry for 31 days. if they do you can file a complaint at the website. you can register your home or mobile phone for free.

first of all dont give out your any number to suspicious people,they can be telemarketers. and if you still get calls,then just cut those calls because they wont stop calling us just if we say them not to do so.
