First of all, I want to thank those that posted info about the http://www.junkbusters.com site! Great stuff!I printed up a few copies of the telemarketer's script. A few hours later, my first victim calls.Me: Hello? <dead silence, it has to be a telemarketer>Me: Hello? <again>TM: Could I speak to <my sister, who left for University a year ago>.Me: May I ask who is calling?TM: Brandon. <aha! This is the same guy that called last week! To bad I didn't have the script then.>Me: Hold on a second. <I run and grab a pen and my script>Me: <reading from script> Are you trying to sell something?TM: Uh, yeah.Me: Could I have your full name please.TM: Michael Lamar Johnson.Me: Hey, I thought you said your name was Brandon!TM: <Chuckles, then hangs up on me>Well, I got no where. I hope he calls again tomorrow. I just need to get to the company name and phone number and I will have him. I am not the confrontational type, but this was fun. Now, how many violations of the TCPA was that? Can I seek damages if he didn't even give me a chance to ask to be put on his do-not-call list or get a copy of the written policy? Maybe I can get treble damages too :)Any suggestions on how to keep them on the phone long enough to bleed the needed info out of them?And how do I get MORE telemarketers to call me? I see the possibility for a nice part time job.
