Never give your real phone number or any email address to companies asking for it. They'll tell you they never give out out or sell it, it's just so they can contact you in case of recalls, etc.

Also, the Do Not Call registry is a joke. It means nothing to these companies, because they know the FCC has no teeth and does not enforce it. It also does not apply to cell phones, although they will accept your number on the on-line form.

In the end, they only know what you tell them.

And as far as feeling sorry for the solicitors, not gonna happen. Call me once, I'll politely tell them I'm not interested and not to call again. Second time, I get nasty. Third time, the very loud air horn comes out. They usually stop after that blast.

Regarding the national "Do Not Call" list;

Any company you have done business with has the right to call you regardless of your national "Do Not Call" status until such time as you inform them to place you on their internal "Do Not Call" list.

I am on the DO NOT CALL list.. but as stated here, it is not enforced, and companies know that.

Many calls that pretend to be SURVEYS ... are REALLY seeing just how many people actually WILL take the call, and be polite ...THIS IS THE WORST THING ANYONE CAN DO !

In reality, what they ARE doing is selling your name to other telemarketers as " RECEPTIVE" to phone calls . This is a totally different list that plain Cold Calling, and many firms pay premium prices for this list.
It means you WON'T scream and hang up, which GUARANTEES you to get more phone calls than most people.

I say Good Sam is violating our rights by giving / selling our personal info to TRAVEL RESORTS or any other 3rd party , and only by calling them and DEMANDING this policy be changed ....will it cease !
