You may well ask "Why would someone, once on the DNC List, want to be deleted from it?"
Why would someone in their right mind, once they are enjoying the peace and quiet, want to start receiving telemarketing calls again?
We thought that was odd, and decided to find out for ourselves.
We did a survey, now that these numbers are again callable, and
found the following important results.
Note: to preserve their privacy, we have X'd out the first digit.
|Lady did not realize she was off the list, and had never asked FTC to delete.
|He took it off thinking it would affect long distance capability
|Owner did not know anything about it, Never asked FTC to be on or off.
|Lady did not realize she was off the list
|Sutherland company has a special do not call number line for people to leave a message taking themselves off their do not call list
|Lady was not aware she was off the list. Never asked FTC to delete.
If the list is an Update of your existing list, it will look
something like this.
The number, then a comma, then Date and Time
The "A" means to Add it, and "D" means to Delete it
So we recommend that you do not Delete the numbers, even though the Government says it is ok. Many of the numbers were fax numbers anyway, which will only waste your time. Many more are people who do not realize they are now Off the list, and want to be back on. They seem to be numbers that are not worth adding back on to the list, anyway.
Our software includes an option to delete them or just keep them on the list.
Do you want the DoNotCallSoftware to consider deleted phone
