I was happy to get this email from a regular TeleMarketer (spammer) in my mailbox today. Before I mark their mails in my spam mail box I thought I must congratulate and say thank you to TRAI.
I just wish that they are able to strictly able to implement the consumer freedom from these uncouth marketers who had no regard for our privacy and would think it was their birthright to continually disturb our peace and interrupt with their calls.
I know some would still resort to giving 'Missed calls' and I am sure the law would catch up with them.
The mail content was very encouraging and read the bottom - last line !!!
