What is the Do Not Call List?

The Do Not Call List is a nationwide registry of telephone numbers that are off-limits to telemarketers. The registry, which is managed by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), was created in 2003 in an effort to give consumers some respite from unwanted calls. To date, more than 217 million phone numbers are on the list.

What are some tips for a Do Not Call List?

1. Make sure to properly register your phone number on the National Do Not Call Registry.

2. Be aware that certain organizations, such as charities and political entities, may still be able to contact you even if your number is on the registry.

3. If you do receive a call from a telemarketer, politely inform them that your number is on the Do Not Call List and ask for them to remove it from their contact list.

4. Keep in mind that scammers may also pose as telemarketers and ignore the Do Not Call List altogether; always use caution before providing any personal information or making payments over the phone.

5. Report any violations of the Do Not Call List to the Federal Trade Commission.

Why am I still getting spam calls when I'm on the Do Not call list?

You may still get spam calls because:

- The call is from a telemarketer who doesn't respect the Do Not Call list.

- The caller is spoofing their phone number to make it look like they're calling from a local number.

- The call is from a robocaller using an automated system to dial numbers.

- You've given your consent to receive calls from the company, either by opting in to their marketing program or by doing business with them in the past.
