Telemarketers ignoring the “do not call” registry should think twice before calling Andre Lamme’s house in Sacramento.
Fed up with repeated calls from stubborn telemarketers, Lamme resorted to a little-known federal law allowing consumers to sue violators in small claims court.
Despite getting my phone numbers on the national do-not-call registry, I’m still getting calls from telemarketers, and I’ve gotten tired of warning these interruptors to my dinner that it’s illegal for them to call me.
Finally, someone hits these guys back!
So far, Lamme’s lawsuits have netted more than $13,000. Lamme said he’s not in it for the money, most of which he donates to charity…
Lamme said the key to collecting is to keep an accurate log. He offers detailed instructions and tools on a Web site he created.
In the first two months, more than a quarter-million people visited Killthecalls.com.
Andre Lamme, you’re my hero for today, and evidently, the hero for more than 250,000 similarly frustrated people. You’re exemplifying the spirit of RIGHT AWN! – the little guy trying to make a difference.
So, to you Andre Lamme, RIGHT AWN!
