The National Do No Call Registry has been established to offer you a choice about receiving telemarketing calls at home. Registering will stop most telemarketing calls, however it will not stop calls from political organizations, charities, companies conducting surveys or companies with whom you have done business within the last 18 months.
Consumers can register their residential phone numbers, including wireless numbers, but business numbers are not covered by the Registry. The number will be on the Do Not Call list the day after registration; however, telemarketers have up to three months to remove the number from their call lists. Registration is effective for five years and a number can be removed from the list at any time. You may register up to three numbers at one time if registering on the Internet. If registering via telephone, you can register only one number at a time and you must call from the telephone number you are registering.
To register or remove a number from the Do Not Call Registry call 1.888.382.1222, for TTY call 1.866.290.4236 or register on the Internet at www.donotcall.gov.
