In this modern age of notifications, telemarketers are finding new ways to reach us no matter where we are. Did you know that there are more than 200,000 employed telemarketers and 250,000 known robocallers out there? Probability says that you have probably been a victim of at least a few of their calls.
In 2003 the FTC implemented the Do Not Call List Registry in an effort to fight telemarketers off. While that helped to stymie the number of unwanted sales calls, it also prompted telemarketing companies to search for new ways to reach people.
Today telemarketing remains a massive industry reporting nearly $500 billion a year in business. That amount of money makes automated calling services aimed at selling you products even more valuable. According to Private Citizen, more than 148 million telemarketing phone calls are made per day. Many of these calls are dialed by robocallers which use computerized systems to call you with pre-recorded messages. Fortunately, technology has also created services to help protect you from these unwanted disturbances.
