<<There is a law called the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. Keep a log of every time this company calls you. When they call, get the name of the person who is calling you, the purpose of their call, their affiliation with the company, and note the time and the date of the call. Also, explain to them every time they call in no uncertain terms that you are not interested in their business and that they must remove your name from their lists under the provisions of this law immediately. If the calls continue, go ahead and file a claim in small claims court under this law. $750 per violation (that is, for each call) is not out of line for your damage claim.>>

Can anyone supply a link that references this Act. I think it could be handy to many on this web site.
