Per Halocho are these callers required to observe dinei de’malchuso din hu? We subscribe to the do not call list, they keep on calling, sometimes automated, live etc. They take advantage as frum Yidden do not ‘masser’.it is reaching epic proportions of sometimes more than 10 per day. motzei shabbos it never ends. it is time to do something, but what? their call back numbers most of the time do not ‘exist’.May 22, 2012 8:09 pm at 8:09 pm #875714WolfishMusingsParticipant
I believe (although I could be wrong) that charitable organizations (and political candidates) are exempt from the DNC restrictions.
However, I wonder if you might have a case if you specifically told them to stop calling you and kept careful records of whom you told it to and when you told them.

These calls are the most irritating and annoying things ever. When they give an option of “select 1 to speak with an operator”, I tend to select 1 and ask them to remove me from the phone list. Having said that, I do not believe the calls are illegal, since charitable organizations are exempt from the do not call registry guidelines.May 22, 2012 9:42 pm at 9:42 pm #875716USE YOUR BRAINMember
I hate all of the jewish phone solicitations with a passion and do not generally donate to the ones that “nudge” me more than once. One thing to note is that the do not call list does not make it illegal for surveys and nonprofits to continue calling. Most of the jewish telemarketers would fall under the nonprofit category. I still think that we should arrange a massive boycott of all the jewish telemarketers.May 22, 2012 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm #875717welldressed007Participant
if they are soliciting then according to the letter of the law, guilty.May 22, 2012 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm #875718lesschumrasParticipant
