National Do Not Call List, a scam.

By Oz_Media ·
The Canadian NDNCL has been proven a scam.

In Canada, the CRTC mandates that all telemarketers MUST adhere to numbers placed on a DNC list. When you ask for your number to be removed, the calling agency must update their list so that the next outfit does not buy YOUR number, or that's how its supposed to work anyway. Rude people usually get added to a call back list instead and marked as a key call, whereas polite and patient people will usually be removed from lists.

So, enter the national do not call list. Again, this list MUST be available to telemarketers so that they can cross reference existing lists. What do you need to become an approved telemarketer that can download the national do not call list? Nothing. Just annual subsrciption payment, $50 for such a list is DIRT cheap indeed! That only pays for 50 numbers from most other list providers.

Just visit the website, click the link and say you are a telemarketer and you get a list of ALL numbers added to the national do not call list.

Now, any legit operation using the list, that continues to call numbers even though they are removed, will be fined. But what about all the others? Anyone in the world can download a copy of it and their countries restrictions may and often are different, meaning they can call you with scams and there's nothing you can do about it.

So, don't be in a hurry to register on the NDNCL, you'll only get more calls.

Yeah I agree

I don't have many friends THAT dumb either, perhaps a couple just to amuse us at the pub. Of course TR is always an exception to any logical rule.

I would want to be around that train wreck when anyone that dumb got drunk.
