Strange, I wasn't interested in the book anyhow. With looking up my favorite places online, it makes this "book" obsolete, both at work and home.
Contrary to popular Misconception, Pre recorded messages ARE allowed to be left on machines and V/M. The FTC had not made a decision on TRS ammendment.
"Another cited reason for rejecting the proposal is that the comments showed that neither consumers nor industry support safeguards in the proposed amendment designed to ensure that consumers who receive calls delivering a recorded message could assert a company-specific do not call request as easily as they could when they receive calls from an in-person sales representative." per the FTC website.
Therefore, it's legal to leave prerecorded messages on machines and V/M. I just don't like the practice.
