Here's a simple one-word formula to drop your telemarketers by about 90%. It's an easy way to get your freedom back from scammers with their "business opportunities"...
While Lester Levenson was sent home to die at age 42, he instead devoted his "last" days to solving the mystery of his own life. He discovered we have basically just 3 basic desires.

Telemarketers use your own urges against you...
Maslow's work explains Cialdini's later research, and why telemarketer sales
work at all.
Comparing Maslow to Cialdini, you can see that while some have
used Cialdini to just pick the key points to use in triggering their sales, with
Maslow's theory as a base, you can also identify your customer and see what
they are most likely to want next. However, most telemarketers are
operating on the law of averages and only 1) want to make their sale, and 2)
resell your name and number to another telemarketer.
To get yourself scam-free, you have to first quit being a patsy. . .
A patsy, a chump, a dupe, a target, a victim – - you know, one of those guys with a big target on their back which says “kick me”. . .
We’re all that way a little bit. Even Professor Robert Cialdini, author of the book “Influence” says he’s one in the opening line. But after 15 years of research, he came up with an incredible book which is still being circulated and brought out in new editions with updates. I got a copy of his fourth edition after I read where a scammer said he had the reasons people will buy whatever you have to sell.
