If you live in the United States of America and have recently moved or have a new telephone number, there is a good chance that you will start to receive a heavy volume of unsoliticated calls from companies that have accessed your data through public record information, or bought it from credit card companies, magazine subscription companies and other data collection warehouses.
Register today with the National Do Not Call Registry and most telemarketers stop calling you within about 30 days. Your Do Not Call registration will remain effective for five years. You can register your home phone and/or mobile phone numbers.
If you continue to receive calls from telemarketers after 45 days, you may file a complaint with the FTC Do-Not-Call Complaint Registry
You can also call the Do Not Call Registry toll-free: 1-888-382-1222 (TTY 1-866-290-4236). Be sure to call from the number that you wish to register. Registration is free.
The US Federal Trade Commission, the Federal Communications Commission, and the states continue to enforce the National Do Not Call Registry.
