Left no message caller I'd says unavailable

When I called back it said it was DirectTv, but I don't think it is. I have DirectTv & when they do call it shows up on the caller id as DirectTv...and they leave a message...these guys did not. I think it's bogus.

Fine, JJ .... Drop your registration tomorrow and enjoy the new flood of sales calls. It'll be like 2002 all over again, when you had to chase down every single caller to revoke contact permission.

I'd almost forgotten that both DirecTV and Dish Network have been sued by the FTC more than once for Telemarketing Sales Rule violations.

WE ARE ON DO-NOT-CALL LIST

I've been registered on the DNC list since it began. I have never had DirectTv, never called them, never even thought about calling them. They are breaking the law, such as it is. Apparently they don't care.

There would not be any websites such as this one if it was effective.

JJ, here's how the FTC has ''duped'' you while taking action to control illegal nuisance callers. Hope you have a few free hours to read it all.

It's unrelated to this thread, but here's an action against a credit reprice scammer:

800Notes comments tend to point to marketing calls from or affiliated with DirecTV. If you are their customer, you have an Established Business Relationship which exempts sales calls related to the TV provider. You have to remove permission to call yourself. ALL OF THIS is explained to you if you take the few minutes to review the FTC material you are prompted to see by the DNC registration site. You cannot be ''scammed'' or ''duped'' before you have done your due diligence to actually comprehend the terms of a service you sign onto.

We've been scammed. We've been duped into believing the federal gov't would spend our tax money to help us with all these telemarketers, scammers and fraudsters and yet they did nothing but create a website giving us a false sense of security.

Really, have you heard about ANYBODY ever fined or prosecuted from reports thru the DNC law?

I'm at my wits end with the endless hangups from this and other numbers. I owe nobody therefore it must be msrketers I'm ready to rip the phone out. Why have a law if its never enforced?


How do I stop them from calling?

  1. Ask the unwanted caller to stop calling and put you on their do not call list (they are legally required to comply).
  2. If your number is registered with the National Do Not Call Registry you can file a complaint with the FTC.
  3. Block them with a call blocker or something like Nomorobo.
