I want you to understand something. Listen to me good. If I want your DSL service, I will call you, or sign up online. But, if you have your telemarketers call my home, skirting the do not call registry*, using the high-pressure tactics that drove us to the do not call registry in the first place, you can be rest assured that not only am I NOT going to use your DSL service, I will most assuredly sever ties with your company altogether. Whatever you are sending us that your people refused to leave the phone till we accepted will end up in my barbeque.
This is 2007. We do not need land line service; we were just keeping it for nostalgia’s sake. But believe me, you have ticked off my wife to the point that I think I can at least talk her into going to Vonage.
Good job. If I were you, I’d look for another direct marketing company. This Novo 1 outfit is giving you a bad, bad, name. Yes, they made the mistake of not supressing caller ID the first time they called, so I know who they are.
*The do not call registry site states that companies you currently do business with are not forbidden from calling you by the do not call rules. This is the pitfall of telecom companies having their hand in everything. We technically do business with Bellsouth (for phone service), but I consider the other arms of the company to be totally separate. Nevertheless, I filed a complaint anyway, so we’ll see what comes of that.
We hate, hate HATE unsolicited marketing calls. They are a sure way to drive us away from doing business with you at all.
Your corporate office will get an earful from my wife tomorrow. You have no idea what you’ve gotten yourself into, getting on the bad side of that woman. You brought this on yourselves, though.
Stupid, stupid,stupid. Who uses high-pressure telemarketing in this day and age?
