Cell phones subject to telemarketing
Effective today, cell phones are being released to telemarketing companies and could begin to start receiving telemarketing calls.
Those with cell phones who receive telephone calls from sales people will have to pay for those calls.
To block telemarketing calls, call the National Do Not Call List at 1-888-382-1222 from the cell phone for which you want sales calls blocked. It takes only about a minute to call the number and register your phone number and your phone number will be blocked from telemarketing calls for five years.
If you continue to receive sales calls more than 31 days after you have registered your number on the list, you may file a complaint against the caller. To file a complaint, you will need the caller’s name or address.
