Mike signed us up for the "Do Not Call" list as soon as he heard about it. He has been diligent about renewing that request as needed and about registering every phone we have added or used in the past several years.
Apparently there is a way around it now.
A while ago I was out and Mike took a call from someone who claimed I had filled out a survey. He told the woman to call back at nine the next morning since he knew nothing about this survey. He told me about it and I couldn't recall filling out a survey. I may have and just did not remember???
The woman called promptly at nine and informed me that my husband had given her the time as a good one to call. I am sure he thought we would both be out for a walk by then. When I asked about what kind of survey, the caller got very vague and hung up!
Then it happened again...and again. Tonight there was a call on Mike's cell. "Congratulations! You filled out a chance to win a Caribbean cruise..." I hung up. There is not a person in the entire world less likely to want to win a cruise of any sort. He always says he got all the cruise experience he ever wants during his years in the Navy.
So this must be some kind of loophole. It the caller claims right away that you basically asked for the call the
"do not call" rules no longer apply.
What took them so long?
And where should we send our complaints?
