Welcome to the home page for the Allen Anti-Telemarketing Society!
Do you consider telemarketers to be a public nuisance? Would you like to find out what you can do to reduce the number of telemarketing calls to your home or office? Your first step is to memorize the two Anti-Telemarketing Commandments. Did you know that it is illegal for telemarketers to block their caller ID information when making calls to the state of Texas? Did you know that ALL junk faxes are illegal (a federal offense), though there are companies who openly advertise their junk fax services? Many telemarketers are operating illegally, though they are rarely prosecuted. Would you like to learn more about your legal rights regarding telemarketers?
We are just getting started with our website, so please bookmark it and check back with us often. We'll soon have a FAQ and more information on how you can use the internet to report illegal telemarketers in Texas.
Have other questions? Would you like to get involved? We'd love to get Allen, Texas black-balled as place that is not friendly towards telemarketers. We'd love to hear from you.
