As you probably know, the Do-Not-Call Registry has been around for several years now. However, it hasn’t completely stopped spam calls. What gives?

It has been effective at reducing calls. The majority of Americans have reported getting far fewer calls from telemarketers. However, most people still get some—what can you do about it?

First, you actually have to put your number in it. It’s pretty easy to do—simply click here to go to the government’s site to register your number. Within 31 days, telemarketers cannot legally call you…in most cases. However, there are a few exceptions, namely:

  • You’re using a business, not personal, phone number

  • Political organizations, surveyors and nonprofit organizations may still legally call

  • Companies with which you’ve done business in the past 18 months may still call unless you explicitly ask to be taken off the calling list

  • These rules do not apply to creditors or credit-collection agencies

  • You added your number to the list fewer than 31 days ago

If none of the above applies to you and you’re still getting calls, you can formally report the phone number calling you for breaking this law. This can be done by going to the Federal Trade Commission’s website. It takes very little time; it’s a simple online form. Your information will then go to the proper law enforcement authority and hopefully stop the calls.
