      The national "Do Not Call" list does not shield consumers from every
      type of unwanted phone call. Political organizations, charities, and
      telephone surveyors are still free to make unsolicited calls without
      penalty, as are companies with which consumers have existing business
      relationships. It is this last exemption that provides ample reason
      for examining very closely any "too good to be true" offers, or for
      even rejecting them out of hand.

      Filling out a survey form or mailing in a completed contest entry or
      taking some business up on its offer of free product might be
      construed as establishing a business relationship with that entity, a
      condition that would allow that group to make un-asked-for sales
      pitches over the telephone despite that particular consumer's
      inclusion on the national "leave me alone" list:
