The penalty for repeat offenders is up to $1500 for each individual telemarketer and $15,000 for the company itself.

Even if they only get caught on 1% of calls, at 15k an offence the risk outweighs the benefits.

I'm sure there are ways around this, but this at least give me some power to make their lives a little more difficult.

Unfortunately your number has been 'raped' like someone said before. Majority of these companies get your number from posts on KIJIJI or Craigs list. they have bots that look on every ad and scans for sellers that post their numbers on their listings. Never put your number anywhere. Use Kijiji's own email reply method, and you wont have this problem.

good luck man
