A few months ago I registered on Canada's National 'do not call' list thinking that would reduce the number of telemarketer calls my house gets. It worked quite well for about 6 weeks. Suddenly in the last month or so, I have been getting 5 to 10 calls a day from telemarketers and it is really driving my family nuts. I had a friend over for dinner tonight and he told me that apparently what happened is that some unscrupulous SOB went to the Canadian National 'do not call' list and copied all the numbers and sold them. Because its a government document apparently its open to the general public to view. Oh, the irony. So now I've got all these telemarketers calling and I don't know what to do about it. Even if I answer the phone and tell them to take me off their list, its likely that are many many companies with my number... so that wont work. I have call display, but still have to walk over to the ph to see who it is. The only other option I can think of is to get a new number and have it unlisted, but I dont know how successful that would be. So what do you guys do to stop the telemarketers?
