    Dr. Leonards Doing Phone Spam
    I bought a few things from Dr. Leonards over the past year for a family member who had a stroke. Now I'm receiving calls every couple of weeks asking if I want to sign up for some life insurance program. I've told them NO THANKS -- I've asked them not to call again (I sleep when the rest of the world is awake) -- and still I get the bi-montly calls.

    I don't remember giving them permission to use my personal information at the time of purchase to call my home whenever they feel like selling something. esp. insurance!!! I have no idea if the insurance is a scam - because - I'm not interested. If I was going to buy life insurance I'm sure I could do it through my own agent or some relative trying to make their quota.

    Now I'm wondering if I should expose my visitors to this type of spam-like marketing.

    That's too bad. Especially considering the segment they cater to, that can almost be considered predatory....

    Are you on the Do Not Call List? If so report them, if not, get on it.

    BTW, register your cell phones also

    In the case of retailers, how long after a purchase are they exempted from the Do Not Call list? My understanding was that you could call your customers.

    At the same time, if your customer tells you not to, I'd say it's adviable not to

    I don't believe Dr Leonards sells Insurance (reqs a license), so it wouldn't be applicable as a retailer calling their customers. That said, here are all the rules:

    The insurance must be something they do independently, but they do say they are from Dr. Leonards, they use your full name, and they thank you for being a customer... then they start in on the life insurance and disability insurance.

    Thanks for the no call info!
