Sometimes it seems no matter what you do, nothing stops pesky telemarketing calls, even when you follow all of the rules. Regardless of how many times you request for a telemarketer to put your number on their do-not-call-list, you hang up on them, screen their calls, and even file a formal complaint, they still continue to push the limits and do their best to annoy you. Of course, not every telemarketing firm shows phone consumers this type of disrespect, but for those that do, there is way for you to vent your frustrations about them.
You will find that in most cases, there is no point in venting your anger at telemarketers. Why? Most callers will not care and hang up on you, and if you try to phone the number back that appears on your call display, you'll likely only receive a voice recording that will get you nowhere. Therefore, you need to make a complaint that will not only help with your stress, but will also be heard by others.
The place you need to go to make your voice heard is on the Internet at a caller complaints site. You can find a website that provides this service by loading a search engine and typing “caller complaint site" into the main query box. Select a website or two that is displayed in the results and file your complaint.
Filing a complaint is very easy, free, and you don't have to sign up in order to make one. However, there are a few details that will be necessary in order for your complaint to be posted successfully. For instance, you will need to include the number of the telemarketer you are venting about, the type of call (I. E. telemarketer, prank call, etc. ), and as detailed a description about the call and caller as you can remember.
Why is it necessary for you to include all of this information in your complaint? The reason is a caller complaining site also acts as a user-generated search database. In other words, you can search a phone number by entering it into the query box to find out if other complaints have been made about it. Furthermore, the more details you can provide, the more helpful this will be to other phone consumers who wish to find out more information about the caller.
Therefore, the next time you receive an annoying call, remember that you can stop telemarketers and annoying calls while venting your frustrations at the same time.
