    Sign up for telemarketing calls

    How can you sign up for telemarketing calls one of my friends needs help on getting as many telemarketers to call him as much as possible, I have tried to help him by putting his number on the internet and signing him up for offers. Is there a guaranteed way on getting more calls from them? He needs to do it for some research project and is gonna get rid of his number in a week, so he doesn't mind giving it out.

    well.... that's sort of a change of pace....

    They may think that you're recording that calls for a comedy album or something....

    He only got one call 2day, so it seems to be working.

    Have him post it here on HoFo and I am sure that he will get many phone calls from members.

    I don't think telemarketers just immediately call up people they find out about. Telemarketing is usually targeted and there are lists that need to be produced before the actual campaign. If he's closing his number in a week, that won't be enough time to carry out a proper project.

    That's a good question...

    Is there actually a way to attract telemarketers?

    Buddy, this is a great idea.. working as the #1 sales associate at my staples for the past 3 years, I just got *****ed at by my manager because i price matched a printer.. i told him off and quit for a job that pays double. I've egged his car many times and his house too, but it doesnt give me that much pleasure anymore. THIS IS A GREAT IDEA!!!

    You just never know...
    My first cell plan was with Cellular One (circa 10/94). It was $49.95/month for 100 LOCAL minutes, voicemail was $4.95/month extra, and it was an additional $.10 to per call to call a landline. No "nights"! - only weekends.
    Now: Nation 850 (total of 4 lines): Unlimited M2M & N/W~$79.97/mo. No landline since 1/05!

    Right now I feel:
