Does it feel like an invasion of your privacy when telemarketers interrupt your work, your dinner or your leisure time? Well, it is! And you have every right to be frustrated. Most of the time, you don’t even know how they got your number — particularly to your cellphone.
Well, here are some of the sneaky ways that they do it:
2. You gave your number out too easily
3. You donated to a charity
You have a big heart and — even though you don’t have a wallet that matches — you give what you can. More than likely, you’ve signed up for their mailing list, which is also a marketing list — and might get sold to other companies.
In these days of technological wizardry, it’s often hard to maintain your privacy. However, you do have certain rights under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act — and an attorney can help you understand when your rights are being violated and what you can do in response.
