CAUTION: No Call List Scam

This notice has nothing to do with website or Internet marketing, but a client shared it with us, and I wanted to share it with you. 

Apparently there are people who are making a living from suing  companies for calling them because they are on the "no call" list.  

This is what they are doing.  They are requesting information from a vendor via email, fax, or phone.  They are providing a mailing address but no phone number.  Like any sales person would, the vendor looks up the persons phone number and then calls them to see if they can be of any other assistance.  After they make the call, the vendor is then sued for calling someone on the "no call" list. 

Apparently most cases are settling out of court, but still, this is not something a small business can afford. 

Each company will decide how or if they want to do anything, but Virtualtech has decided that unless we are given a phone number, we are not following up with a phone call.
