The National Do Not Call Registry gives you a choice about whether to receive telemarketing calls at home. Most telemarketers should not call your number once it has been on the registry for 31 days. If they do, you can file a complaint at the website https://www.donotcall.gov/ You can register your home or mobile phone for free, in fact, you can list up to three phone numbers. At this time of year, everyone seems to want your vote or your money. If you feel that robo calls and telemarketing calls are invading the privacy of your own phone, the good news is that you can opt out of robocalls at any time. To stop unwanted calls, register your home and mobile numbers at www.DoNotCall.gov and expect your phone service provider to offer call-blocking tools. Phone service providers offer robocall-blocking technology to customers because of a ruling that upholds the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and bolsters the Do Not Call Registry. This ruling regarding telemarketing messages applies also to text messages and calls to wireless and landline phones. Check out: https://www.fcc.gov for additional information on blocking calls. This is easy to do and you will receive a confirming email that verifies your successful registration for each phone that you registered. It is free and it works!
