The National Do Not Call Registry was created by the federal government to make it easier and more efficient for you to stop getting telemarketing calls that you do NOT want. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the individual states enforce the Do Not Call Registry.
Placing your number on the registry will stop most, but not all, telemarketing calls. The FTC and most states allow companies an exemption to call phone numbers on the Registry when the companies have an existing business relationship with the owner of the phone number. Calls from or on behalf of political organizations, charities and telephone surveyors are still permitted.
To register for and learn more about the Do Not Call Registry, visit www.donotcall.gov or call 1-888-382-1222 toll-free from the number you wish to register.
