Do Not Call Registry

DO NOT CALL REGISTRY


Telemarketing calls are often an unwelcome annoyance. To reduce the amount of unwanted telemarketing calls you receive, you can register your home and cellular phone numbers on the nationwide Do Not Call Registry. The Attorney General’s Office enforces the rules of the Do Not Call Registry to make sure that businesses follow the law and consumers do not become victims of fraud.

To register, visit https://donotcall.gov/register/reg.aspx or call 1-888-382-1222 (TTY: 1-866-290-4236).

This service is free to consumers and doesn’t require repeated enrollment—once you sign up, your registration will not expire. However, it’s important to know that, under federal and state law, a number of businesses or organizations still can call numbers on the registry, including:

  • calls from organizations with which you have established a business relationship;

  • calls for which you have given prior written consent;

  • calls which are not commercial or do not include unsolicited advertisements;

  • calls by or on behalf of tax-exempt non-profit organizations.

Consult the Federal Trade Commission’s frequently asked questions about the Do Not Call Registry for additional information.

To report a violation of the Do Not Call Registry to the Attorney General’s Office, please submit a complaint form or call the Consumer Fraud Hotline.
