Telemarketing

I receive roughly 3 calls a day from telemarketers.  They call from all over the United States and since I don't know if it is a customer or not I need to answer the call.  Does this active happen on St Thomas also.  Just curious.

I don't think I've had more than three telemarketing calls on my 340 cell number over the entire 15 years I've lived in the VI!

The only time I have ever gotten a call is election time, when they are trying to turn out the vote! Oh, and CDC questionnaires.

Get a 340 area code when you relocate for your business #

We do plan to change our number when we move to the island.  It is going to save me lots of time not having to talk about a student loan I don't have, an instant credit card I can have, the pain management that I don't need, the spend 39.99 for a charm that keeps evil spirits away, and finally the burial insurance that I sure don't need right now because I already have some. Island living, ahhhhhhh.

yeah, I do recieve calls from many telemarketers, but now I have blocked some of their numbers but still, it is very difficult to differentiate who is calling.

Hopefully there’s a special place in Hell for telemarketers

Its very simple to avoid telemarketers. If you don't recognize the number, don't answer.

That's why you have voice mail!
