Dish Network

If Dish Network doesn't stop bothering me...

I spoke to someone months ago asking to be removed from their call list. (I never get any telemarketing calls except theirs, and I don't remember whether I'm on the do not call list. Dad thinks I must be since I don't get massive amounts of other calls.) I still get daily calls. I've pressed 2 to be removed. I still get daily calls. So today I spoke with a rep again. I asked him to speak with his supervisor and advised him that if the calls continue I will be taking legal action.

I did some research and found a high number of complaints against this company for violating the do not call registry, calling people multiple times a day, etc. Supposedly there is nothing that can be done since they outsource their sales work. Even if I wanted a satellite dish, I now would not get one. It's a matter of principle.

We used to have Dish Network at one time and their customer service was horrible. When we moved to where we live now, we went with Direct TV instead and I have been much happier with their customer service, except for when they try to sell me something and then I have told them that if they don't quit, I will switch my service to either cable or to Dish. That has pretty much takenc are of things and we are on the do not call list.
I have a feeling that since I complained so much about Ron Paul's campaign calling us several times a day, that we are on the blaack list for most telemarkters.

an interesting thing
I did learn that nonprofits (and probably political parties) are exempt from following the do not call list.

Re: an interesting thing
You are correct. If it is not for profit or a political party, they can call but if they get harrassing like Ron Paul's campaign did, then you can complain and that is just waht I did and evidently we were black listed because in our state, when it came to the primaries, no one called us and that was really nice.
