Every day I get a call from someone that usually barely speaks English, and usually calling from a very loud office or room (probably a sweatshop) with people screaming and yelling in the background. They want to tell me about all the free money that I qualify for from the State of California and to get it, all I have to do is allow them to come to my home to do a free energy survey. I usually let them ramble on before I tell them I'm not interested, but they are very aggressive and don't give up. I pretty much allow them to talk and waste as much time as they want and they usually get frustrated and hang up.
Today the barely-english-speaking woman put me through to her supervisor who presented himself as Aaron Lancaster. The first thing I asked was to be removed from their calling list, to which he responded he was not required to, and could not do. I was a bit surprised and asked him to confirm this, and again he said "we do not have to remove you from our list or stop calling you" .. I googled it and he may be right. It seems that American Pro Energy may be operating under the radar of the Do Not Call list and may not qualify as the type of business that has to abide by the Do Not Call list. Great going lawmakers!
Anyway, unless there is something good on TV I just allow them to go on and on, and spend as much time talking as they wish. I don't really pay attention but whenever they get to the point of setting up my free energy survey or consultation I just tell them no thank-you.
