National Do Not Call Registry
December 2017

You Can Register Your Home Or Mobile Phone For Free!

The National Do Not Call Registry gives you a choice about whether to receive telemarketing calls at home. Most telemarketers should not call your number once it has been on the registry for 31 days. If they do, visit https://complaints.donotcall.gov to file a complaint.

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. These calls are not coming from the Registry or the Federal Trade Commission, and you should not respond to these calls. To add your number to the Registry you can visit https://donotcall.gov/register/reg.aspx or call (888) 382-1222 (TTY: (866) 290-4236) from the phone you wish to register. Once registered, your phone number should appear on the Registry the next day.

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

  • You may file a complaint if you received an unwanted call after your number was on the National Registry for 31 days.
  • You may also file a complaint if you received a call that used a recorded message instead of a live person (whether or not your number was on the Registry).

– Even if your number is registered, charities, political organizations, and telephone surveyors may continue to call you. Companies with which you do business may also continue to call, unless you have asked them to stop calling you. If you have asked them to stop calling, please keep a record of the date you made the request and include that information in the comment section of any complaint you submit against that company.
