    Hey guys.. you may or may not be aware of this but in my area and a few others that i have checked - you are required to obtain a telemarketers license to make cold calls.

    The reason im posting this is because a good handful of us do quite a bit of cold calling and wanted you to be aware of this. Not to long ago 14 people were arrested for operating without a telemarketers license. The people who employed these people were also charged...all charged with 3rd degree felonies.

    Keep in mind these were people who were selling advertisements for a magazine but couldnt provide any information as to where the magazine was distributed.

    Just a heads up...be careful out there.

    This doesn't help anyone UNLESS you say where you are from.

    As a "business owner" you should be doing your research if you do not want to end up in that type of situation.

    Try googling something like "(Your State) Telemarketing License"

    [h=2]Registration for Telemarketing Companies[/h] Several states require telemarketers to obtain a permit or license to operate. Many of these states exempt certain calls or businesses based on what is being sold, who it is being sold to, or the fact that the business has another type of state license. Cost depends on which exemptions are applicable to your business. States generally charge a fee for this license and some require that a bond be posted. Currently, state fees range from free to $6,000 per year, and bonds range from free to $100,000.
