A lady called us yesterday angry with US for telemarketing. Heres what happened.

the lady orders directv. next day, a telemarketer calls her soliciting Directv(i thought it was against the rules??) so the lady decides to listen to the sales pitch and see if she could get a better deal:rolleyes: when she finds out its the same deal, she says "no thank you i already ordered directv" so the telemarketer tells her to F%$# OFF! Then the lady calls directv to bitch them out and cancel her installation because of the telemarketer. The CSR at Directv then tells her that there are 2 local dealers in our area that market like that and gave her our number along with another dealer!<m137>

I don't believe it is illegal. I think you mean that it is against the rules. You will lose your dealer number if caught.

That Directv CSR should be taken out back and whipped.

There needs to be a spamming clause also .

.... for the longest time (MANY years), rumors and anecdotal information suggested that they paid the telemarketers MORE per sale than they pay us per sale...
