The Do Not Call List - Frequently Asked Issues About The List

Sometimes when you are in the middle of working something that needs to be done without being disturbed, you get phone calls from telemarketers who only talks about the products they want you to have. This is increasing each day and you can no longer handle the disturbance these phone calls are doing. You are not alone in this mess. There are countless residence that are having a hard time answering these phone calls because all it does is promote the products they have. Sometimes you are not given the time to speak since some of these calls are made by robo dialers. Many residents have reported this to local government agencies that it has disturbed their home. Due to the level of this case, a law was implemented by the government where residents can register their names to the do not call list, a list where it has registered all the phone and mobile numbers of residents that do not wish to received calls from telemarketers.
The do not call list today has become more regulated compared to when it was first implemented. This is due to the telemarketers or businesses ignoring the rules that the government has heightened its restrictions and will file lawsuit against those who disobey the rules of telemarketing sales. This is only possible if the consumer will report the company to the authorities. The regulations implemented may depend from one state to another but generally it implements strict rules for telemarketing companies to follow.
  • The telemarketer's calling time is between 8 in the morning and 9 at night. A violation will occur if telemarketers call outside the given time.
  • The registered mobile and phone numbers in the do not call list are valid for five years. Consumers do not need to register their number again within those years unless they have changed their mobile or phone number.
  •  It depends on where you register your phone or mobile number. Government agencies register both mobile and phone numbers for free. It is also recommended for consumers to register all numbers that they have whether it be phone or mobile.
  • The list does not apply to entities that are a necessity for a resident such as insurance companies, charities, credit unions, banks, airlines, telephone companies, or political fundraisers. Even when the consumer has registered their number at a federal level, they may still receive calls from the aforementioned entities.
  • If you have an existing relationship from the last twelve to eighteen months with a telemarketer, you will receive phone calls from them.
Despite the rules mentioned above, if you as a consumer has been called by a telemarketing company and you do not like hearing from them again, you are recommended to request that your name, your number and the name of the company be listed on a list where the telemarketing companies are needed to uphold.
Companies must honor the rules and regulations implemented on the do not call list or they will face charges against them.
