The additive company (used to be Kranes) called the other day and tried to
coerce my wife into buing again. They did this in spite of me telling them
not a month ago that we have sanitary sewers (I lied - not sorry!). THe
angle this time is that the toilet paper in now being manufactured with more
recycled paper and had addition, hard to dissolve properties which he didn't
explain and wasn't willing to - there's a surprise. Fortunately, she didn't
give and they said that they would call back. My big issue is what ever
happened to the national opt-out program to block these calls? I checked to
be sure that my number is still on the list and it is. Any suggestions??
1. Ask for their contact information for the purpose of turning them
2. Hand the phone to a 2 year old if available.
3. Start a string of profanity and personal insults guaranteed to make
a sailor blush.
Send them a REGISTERED letter preferably on lawyer letterhead stating
ANY futher calls will begin a lawsuit..
Thats how I FINALLY got AT&T to quit calling!

Well they placed the permanent in the spring then kept calling to get
ME to make my final arrangements:(

As I understand it, once you have established a relationship to the
company they have rights to contact you for something like six months
legally even if you are on the list.
I suggest telling them that you will turn them in at the next call. If
you get the next call, I suggest you start off with something like:
Congratulations, you have just won three free dance lessons. Just give
me your name, address and telephone number and a dance professional will
contact you to schedule your free lessons .....
It works, I have done it.
The Do-Not-Call list only applies if you have never done business with
a company. If you have bought from then in the past, then you have a
"previous business relationship" and they can call you.
HOWEVER, if you tell them flat out they are never ever to call you
again, then from what I understand they cannot. Anybody who calls you
after you have ordered them to leave you alone might open themselves
up to harassment charges or other legal troubles. I suggest keeping a
log of days/times they call.
Right. But, if the OP tells the additive company not to call them again,
they are bound by the DNC.
The FTC DNC FAQ specifically says:
In other words, a marketer you purchased from is not bound by a
pre-existing DNC entry.
But, if you explicitly tell the marketer not to call you again,
they ARE bound. If they call you again after you've told them
not to, I suggest you file a complaint with the FTC. See
the link below.
