Somebody Sold Us Out

I just ended our second telemarking call in three days, after receiving no such calls in over two years of Quebec residence. I suspect that someone has recently sold (and bought) our information. And unless someone can correct me, Canada is behind the U.S. in at least one respect: in the U.S. we were able to add our names and phone number to a “do not call” list that telemarketers were legally required to respect. We still got calls from nonprofits, but that was much better.

  1. Yes but here in the States we still have to register every new phone number with the list.

    On a related note, has anyone else noticed that new phone numbers seem to be turning over faster? I keep getting calls for someone named alternately “Katherine,” “Katie,” “Kitty” and “Kitty Cat.” Apparently she had my number up until July 30.
