A Simple, Direct Way To Shoo Away Telemarketers

Personal finance blogger Fabulously Broke says she’s managed to get telemarketers to stop bugging her by finding the number to offenders’ offices and bringing the fight right to them.

She writes:

Google their number, and you are sure to find forums filled with irate customers who have received the same annoying 1-800 number.

Call the company responsible to get to Customer Service.

Ask to be taken off every snail mailing, calling, emailing list they have in existence on their system for every type of package, service and product.

She says the tactic has stopped all telemarketing calls and emails.
