"Sweet revenge against telemarketers... the beauty is, any intelligent company will settle this kind of case out of court, because the hassle of going to trial over such (to them) petty matters is worth the payoff. But the real beauty is that since I asserted my rights, I now receive almost no telemarketing calls from anyone."

Fabulous story! Providian called my wife and I 10 times at all hours of the day or night until I told them that what they were doing was aggravated harassment, a crime in NY punishable as a misdemeanor with a fine of $1000 and one year in jail. That ended the calls.
