Don’t Fall for the Do Not Call Registry Scam

Be warned!

Scammers have been making phone calls claiming to represent the National Do Not Call Registry. The calls claim to provide an opportunity to sign up for the Registry, but the calls are not coming from the Registry or the Federal Trade Commission. Do not respond to these calls. To add your number to the Registry you can call 888-382-1222 from the phone you wish to register, or go click on “Register a Phone Number” in the left column of this page, https://donotcall.gov/.

Your registration will not expire. Telephone numbers placed on the National Do Not Call Registry remain on it permanently due to the Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007, which became law in February 2008. Read more about the Do-Not-Call Improvement Act at http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2008/04/dncfyi.shtm.
