Modem spy allows you to record telephone conversations through your dial up modem!

http://www.allformp3.com/record-phone-conversation.htm
$24.95 US dollars!

The software will record all phone conversations as well as Caller ID information allowing you to have a crystal-clear record of every conversation from your phone! Great for business use and even the home! It plays back recorded messages on a phone line or sound card, has built-in gain control and displays caller ID information.

Provide me with some files, I'll post them on the site!

Fed up...

As far as I know it is not illegal to record a phone conversation as long as one of the two parties engaged in the conversation is aware the recording is happening.

IE...If you know and they don't...its OK

However you can't record a conversation two other people are having, without their consent.

This software wont work unless you have a voice modem installed on your PC.  Most contemporary machines are now shipped with fax modems.Cry

 It is not illegal to record a call from a nasty person who intends to cause you harm in one form or another.

 The real question is "is it admissable in court, or any other legal proceedings?" Megapo would be able to detemrine this rather quickly i would think. This person has a ton (and then some) of such information.

my cel phone the Motorola V300 and prolly the newer models allows for recording conversations by simply pressing a button while speaking. I have a solid record of my supposed standings with nordon now.

If you are recording a phone call it is commonly (depending on where you are in the world) required to ask the other person if it is ok with them if you record the conversation. (if they say 'yes' on tape, no problemo) Hence why you hear an aweful lot of those "This call may be recorded and / or monitored for training and quality control purposes..."

If you get that message when you contact your CA then it seems to me that it is already ok for you to record the conversation for your own "training and quality control purposes".

If you don't get that message then ask them politely if it is okay to record the conversation. If they say 'no', then maybe say something polite such as, "thank you for your time" and hang up. Call them back again. remember to ask that question repeatedly with each new person you speak to and remind them that the call is being recorded as often as possible.

As for software that you can use, heck, any voice modem comes with that ability with it's built in software. Under Windows, if you extend your AuxMixer properties (under record) there will be an option right there to un-mute the modem and with any recording software you can record the voice audio of the phone conversation. Provided you are using the phone connected to the modem and the modem is connected to the phone jack. There are also freeware and shareware versions out there. Under Linux you're not so lucky, but the workaround is much more fun.

I used this technique once a few years ago against a spammer, to wit, his 1-800 number was revoked.

I used to be a PI amongst other things.

It is LEGAL as long as one person knows the conversation is being recorded. It probably won't hold up in court unless you warn them so do so!

I tell government agencies all the time that I am recording the phone call. That makes it clear to them that they cannot advise anything unethical or illegal.

Bugger the collector. You may tape your own telephone calls. Period.

There is no law that PERMITS this, simply because laws are there to prohibit, not to allow.

Tape every conversation you have with a collector. When they get heavy with you play back their greatest hits for them. Then complain to the ministry. Take the offensive.

I think what should be considered is the nature of the call.  I suspect strongly that if you are going to record a telephone conversation between yourself and an organization for business purposes, there is no problem to record the conversation if they initiate the call to you.  If you call them, you may wish to advise them that the conversation will be recorded to ensure there are no misunderstandings down the road.  By doing this, you are protecting yourself so that it can't be said that you set up the call to be misleading.

Fortunately, the corporation HAS to advise you if they are recording the conversation regardless of who initiate the call AND they have to specify if it's being used for "QUALITY" purposes or for legal record.

However, when you are recording a conversation between yourself and an individual person, I think it's then when you step on privacy laws and should be very cautious as you may be in trouble if shared or found by others.

This is all to the best of my knowledge from dealings with this topic occasionally at my work. (No, I'm not a CA)

 There are key words that should be used... they are "for consumer protection" and "personal protection".

 This will eliminate liability.

If I call them, and they say the call will be recorded, do I have to advise them of the same?  For their recordings, we both acknowledge this, so we're both aware.  It just depends who has the tape.

The reason that a corporation Has to tell you your call will be recorded is that they are a third party. That would be the same as someone taping your home phone and not letting you know.

When you tape a phone call, or any conversation you have, you do not have to let the other party know.

Having this recording on at all times, will show that you are trying to meet your end of the agreement. It is they who continue to break the laws, by phoning all times of the day or night, at work, yelling etc...

I would also suggest a journal and make it a point to write down each and every call, including the time, date, name of the call, company they are calling on behalf of, and what the conversation was about.

Play this game on an equal playing field so that if you ever have to dispute this you will have all of your facts ready to go.

A fax modem WILL work with this software.  You can get one at the computer store for $19 and just pop it into your PCI slot.  I'm using AOpen FM56-SVV

http://usa.aopen.com/products/modem/fm56-svv.htm

Software installation of Modem Spy was really quick and it has all these other neat features too. 

Make sure the DSL filter is on before the line enters the modem, then connect your phone to the output on the modem.

This software worked with the fax modem in one of my machines, but not the one in another, so some fax modems are supported but not all.

Also, the audio quality that the software produces is not very crisp.

I eventually went to RadioShack and bought a little gizmo that plugs into my phone line and a tape recorder -- audio is crystal clear.  They have a number of different phone line recording devices available on their website.   I looked around but haven't seen any at other retailers.

Record, record, record!!  It's perfectly legal, you're entirely within your rights, and I hope you catch the **** breaking the law.  This kind of evidence is the only way to make allegations stick.

Sure.  Just make sure the DSL filter is on the line before it enters the modem, otherwise you will get static.
