You make some good, and important points, Sandra.
The folks who call you are nothing but telemarketers.
You shouldn't really dignify them by calling them "sales people." Actual sales people are folks with a product or service that fills a need. The only "need" these folks want to fill is their need for your money.
That's why it might be a good idea to pass up these cyberspace charlatans who want your phone number as well as your name and email address. One doesn't need your phone number unless one plans to call you and run you through the spiel they've been taught to separate you from your assets.
One might even say the "red flag" is the request for your phone number in the first place. If your phone number is "in the book", it means that "they" know who and where you are - and you know NOTHING about "them". How can anyone be comfortable in a situation like that?
It seems what attracts folks to this ilk is the claim, or promise, that one can make a million without working up a sweat. And, as you know, that ain't gonna happen:o)

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
