I get called twice daily for the past 3 weeks from this number. No one is there when I answer and no message is ever left when I don't answer. When I redail the number it tells me this number is not in service. This number has nothing to do with SaskTel. It belongs to Norsask Consumer Interviewing Services and is just a name they gave some out trunks. The Do Not Call number for them is (306) 652-5160. SaskTel has no recourse in a situation such as this. When is a phone number not a phone number?? Received 2 calls from this number today. I did not answer - no message left. I live in Saskatchewan. Here's what Andy Rooney suggests doing:
Three Little Words That Work!:
1)The three little words are: "Hold On, Please..." Saying this, while putting down your phone and walking off (instead of hanging-up
immediately) would make each telemarketing call so much more time-consuming, that boiler room sales would grind to a halt. Then when you eventually hear the phone company's "beep-beep-beep" tone, you know it's time to go back and hang up your handset, which has efficiently completed its task. These three little words will help eliminate telephone soliciting.
2) Do you ever get those annoying phone calls with no one on the other end? This is a telemarketing technique where a machine makes phone calls and records the time of day when a person answers the phone. This technique is used to determine the best time of day for a "real" sales person to call back and get someone at home. What you can do after answering, if you notice there is no one there, is to immediately start hitting your # button on the phone, 6 or 7 times, as quickly as possible. This confuses the machine that dialed the call and it kicks your number out of their system. Gosh, what a shame not to have your name in their system any longer !!!
Who Can Still Call You Who Can Still Call You? What can you do to reduce telemarketing calls that are exempt from the National DNCL Rules? What about calls from market research or polling firms? Who Can Still Call You? Consumers should understand that registering on the National DNCL will reduce but not eliminate all telemarketing calls. There are certain kinds of telemarketing calls that are exempted from the National DNCL Rules. The exemptions include telemarketing calls made by, or on behalf of: Canadian registered charities; Political parties, riding associations and candidates; and Newspapers of general circulation for the purpose of soliciting subscriptions. Telemarketing calls from organizations with whom you have an existing business relationship are also exempt. You are considered to have an existing business relationship with a telemarketer if you: Purchased, leased, or rented a product or service in the last eighteen (18) months from the telemarketer; You have a written contract with the telemarketer for a service that is still in effect or expired within the last eighteen (18) months; and/or You asked a telemarketer about a product or service within the last six (6) months. Telemarketers may also call you if you have provided express consent to be called. Express consent includes: Your permission on a written form, electronic form, or an online form; or Your verbal permission. The National DNCL Rules to not apply to telemarketing calls made to businesses. What can you do to reduce telemarketing calls that are exempt from the National DNCL Rules? If you do not want to be called by a telemarketer making an exempted call, you can ask to be put on the telemarketer?s own specific do not call list. Every Canadian telemarketer is required to maintain such a list and respect your wishes not to be called. Organizations conducting market research, surveys, or public opinion polls are not required to keep their own specific do not call lists. What about calls from market research or polling firms? Calls from organizations conducting market research, surveys, or public opinion polls are also exempt from the National Do Not Call List Rules and are not required to keep an internal do not call list. These types of calls are not telemarketing calls because the caller is not asking you to purchase, lease or rent products or services.
