Enter Your Phone Number Into The Do Not Call List

Editor:

Are you aware that telemarketers are required by law to register with the Federal Trade Commission? If you are receiving numerous such calls, the number of calls can be limited. Telephone the Federal Trade Commission and have your telephone number entered in the “Do Not Call Registry.” You must register each year, and you must wait 31 days for your number to be activated. The Commission’s number is (888) 382-1222.

If you wonder why you receive calls throughout each day and night and find no one on the line, it’s because the telemarketer has dialed numerous numbers at one time. And, as he continues to dial numbers, your telephone number will repeatedly surface until he is able to speak to you.

One other website to add to this is http://www.whocallsme.com when you receive a call from someone you don't know and want to check it out. You can go to this website and check the number, and you will see who is calling and are telemarketers. You will also be able to register new numbers that are not on the list. But once you sign up for the do not call registry, you have to follow through with complaints as to the number that keeps calling you. Once Do Not Call Registry receives so many complaints about that certain phone number, they will investgiate the company or telemarketer. For computer users, the website for the registry is http://www.donotcall.gov I have been registered with Do Not Call for a long time. Once you register, it's for good for that number as long as you own that number. Unless you move or disconnect your phone, then the number goes off the list at Do Not Call. You can also register cell phones too. Up to 3 numbers are allowed.
