Businesses NOT ALLOWED on Do Not Call Lists & Costing Them Millions

In Canada, Do Not Call Lists are only there to protect residential and mobile customers. It is perfectly fine for telemarketers to harass businesses, costing 10's of millions per year in lost customer calls and productivity.

SURREY, British Columbia - May 24, 2018 - PRLog -- With some businesses receiving up to 20 telemarketing calls per day from one single number, the costs of lost productivity, lost calls from actual potential customers and the fact that these companies do not actually represent Google or the parent company, Alphabet are eating up resources which many small businesses can not afford to give up. It is estimated that these automated calls are costing Canadian and American businesses in the 10's of millions each year.

The national Do Not Call List only applies to residential phone lines and cell phones. Thus, the businesses are stuck until some drastic change is made. The options in my opinion are as follows.

* Ban robo calls (government may be reluctant as it is becoming a tools for politicians to reach out to potential voters and donors)

* Companies such as Google take legal action against companies using their trademarked and copyright protected names without consent and under false pretenses. (Once a few of these companies get hit with massive legal costs and judgments, the number of marketing companies using this method will decrease rapidly)

* Small business owners, companies and corporations file a class action suit against the marketing companies and Google under the vicarious liability clause which may force Google and Alphabet to take action against these companies.

* Ban Robo Calls by third party companies with substantial, enforceable penalties.

I have reached out to Google's media department to find out if there is currently any action being taken in order to cut down on third parties who hold themselves out to be connected to Google. No response has be received.

If your business deals with this issue, please feel free to reach out to me. The more information compiled, the stronger the case when brought to the politicians at all levels.

DISCLOSURE: I am also a business person who is fed up with these calls. Such numbers as 604-283-1359. I think everyone should call them and see how they feel about their phone lines being tied up all day with useless calls. The count on my phone so far today from this number is 22 and it is only 3:30pm.
