National Do Not Call Registry

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

To stop unwanted telemarketing calls to your telephone and cell phone, visit the Federal Trade Commission's website and register online at this link:

The FTC also would like you to know that you are not in danger of receiving a telemarketing assault on your cell phone. Note this message from their site:

"You may place your personal cell phone number on the National Do Not Call Registry. The registry has accepted cell phone numbers since it opened for registrations in June 2003. There is no deadline to register a home or cell phone number on the Registry.

You may have received an email telling you that your cell phone is about to be assaulted by telemarketing calls as a result of a new cell phone number database; however, that is not the case. Federal Communications Commission regulations prohibit telemarketers from using automated dialers to call cell phone numbers."
