There may times when telemarketers have your permission to call. But you call the shots—you can give permission and you can take it away! There’s direct permission (like ticking a box on a form) or indirect permission through an existing relationship (such as with your bank). • You have the right to end a call and the caller must comply. Be polite but firm: ‘Thank you, but I do not wish to continue this call.’ • You can also avoid future calls from the telemarketer. Again, be polite but firm: ‘I want to be removed from your calling list.’ Our advice can help you call the shots with telemarketers: http://www.acma.gov.au/theacma/telemarketing-calls-do-you-know-your-rights?utm_source=s0cial&utm_medium=s0cial&utm_campaign=dncr
