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.
