No Call List

Everyone needs to do this:

This program is designed to reduce the number of calls residential subscribers receive from telemarketers. It will not eliminate all telemarketing calls. The following solicitors (telemarketers) are exempt from participating in the No Call program:

1) An entity that does not make the major sales presentation during the call,
2) An entity that does not try to complete the sale during the call,
3) An entity with no intent to complete the sale on the call, but arranges a face-to-face meeting with the consumer to complete the sale,
4) Mississippi licensed real estate agents,
5) Mississippi licensed motor vehicle dealers,
6) Mississippi licensed Insurance agents,
7) Registered securities brokers and investment advisors,
8) Registered charitable organizations or callers on their behalf that receive no compensation,
9) Newspapers,
10) Financial institutions with a physical location in Mississippi that are subject to supervision by an official state or federal agency,
11) Mississippi licensed funeral homes, and
12) Companies you have an established business relationship with or had a relationship with during the past six months.

If you continue to receive calls from non-exempt solicitors after the effective date listed above, you may file a complaint with the Mississippi Public Service Commission. All complaints must be filed in writing. Instructions for filing a complaint and Complaint Forms are available on the website at http://www.psc.state.ms.us or by dialing 1-86NOCALLMS (1-866-622-5567)

For further information about the No Call program see Frequently Asked Questions for Subscribers on the website at http://www.psc.state.ms.us.

I think the rest of the U.S. has campaigns against these jerks. If a call comes in private or unknown I will not answer it.
