On July 26, 2010 at 8:55 pm, I received a call with a recorded message from 347-982-0051. The
recorded message said to push ## (some number) to have our business number included in Google's
online directory. I hung up..
On Aug. 6, 2010 at 2:09 pm, I received another Google "online directory" call, and I hung up on it
again. It was the same number calling.
I don't care weather it's Google or not. It's a violation of TSR (Telemarketing Sales Rule) which
came into effect on Sept. 1, 2009 from the FTC. If you receive a recorded message** (commonly
called a "robo-call") you can report them. (Please see exclusions below).
** There are some recorded messages which are excluded (allowed), such as your flight is delayed,
or your refrigerator delivery is at 3pm, etc. Non-profit type calls might be excluded as well.
Please chedk the FTC site for further information.
