Offshore telemarketers defy Canada's do-not-call list
Foreign telemarketing firms are "harassing" Canadians on the federal do-not-call list, and the CRTC is powerless to stop them, a CBC investigation has found.
In an undercover investigation, Marketplace brought hidden cameras into a Karachi, Pakistan, call centre that sells air duct cleaning services to Canadian households. Undercover footage captured a supervisor telling employees to lie to customers, saying there is "no need to worry" about Canada's do-not-call list (DNCL), which is meant to protect Canadians from unsolicited calls.
As a result, some Canadians face constant pestering from the same companies and are feeling helpless.
I have to assume some company (that wants to provide a service) has hired some company(an advertising company or telemarketer)to find clients to purchase their product. IF you can't charge/find the telemarketers...Surely you can find the company that is providing the product or service.
Take the name of the company that wants to clean your airducts/sell you a cruise...and CHARGE THEM.
Can't find the telemarketers? Charge their clients....
They don't go finding clients for a service and then go looking for a service provider.
