In 2003, the Do-Not-Call Act was signed into law. This legislation allowed for the establishment and enforcement of a national Do-Not-Call Registry giving consumers a choice regarding telemarketing calls. If your number is listed on the registry, all commercial telemarketers, except for businesses with whom you have an existing relationship or certain non-profit and political organizations, are not allowed to call you.
Consumers may register their residential telephone number, including wireless numbers, on the national Do-Not-Call Registry at no cost. You can register on-line for the national Do-Not-Call Registry via the internet at www.donotcall.gov. To contact the registry by telephone, consumers may call 1-888-382-1222. For TTY, call 1-866-290-4236.
Inclusion of your telephone number on the national Do-Not-Call Registry will be effective 31 days after registration. Your number will remain on the registry permanently. You are allowed to remove your number from the registry at any time.
