A PIECE OF MIND FOR PEACE OF MIND MOVEMENT.
A call to action against the AMERICAN TELESERVICES ASSOCIATION Refer to this previous post
The link above will take you to the ATA contact website. There is a form you can fill out to contact the ATA and give them a Piece of your Mind for violating your PEACE OF MIND
Interestingly there are two 800 numbers for you to call.
I am going to start calling these two numbers at 1pm on Monday EST. I am going to say to the person who answers
"Hi" "Who am I speaking to today?" "Could I please speak to Mr. Tim Searcy Executive Director?"
"Why hello Ms or Mr. ________ , How are you doing today?"
"Isn't it a lovely day today Mr or MS __________?
"I am calling from the Piece of Mind for Peace of Mind movement where I am regional director and a member"
"We are a loose association of individuals who value greatly our Peace of Mind"
"Do you value your peace of mind Ms or Mr _____?"
"Do you like that quiet time with your thoughts or your family after you get home from work"
"Do you hate being interrupted by some jerk trying to sell you something you neither need nor want"
YOUR CALL WILL PROBABLY BE TERMINATED BY NOW so just wing it.
Wouldn't it be interesting if many people called those numbers beginning at 1PM Monday in their respective time zones and continued calling until 2pm in their respective time zones. What if we did that for a week? Do you think the telemarketers would get the message?
Probably not but I am going to try.
Care to join me in this? Please comment. For those of you who support this idea but do not wish to call there is a page of e-mail addresses.
Mass e-mail from the Piece of Mind for Peace of Mind movement to every addressee on the page would be appropriate.
Inspired in part by SKB and this post on the Association of Pickpockets and Muggers but they don't have a website with phone numbers.
