Do-Not-Call Registration to Expire

If you have entered your home phone number in the national Do Not Call list to block the annoying 7:00 pm marketing calls four years ago, your number will become available to telemarketers next year as the registration is effective for only five years.

It’s time re-register!

A couple of days ago, there was an article on USA Today reminding people whose registrations are about to expire to register again. Once the phone number is registered, there will be a 31-day period before the registration takes effect.

To register your phone number, whether it’s your first time or for renewals, go to National Do Not Call Registry or and enter up to three numbers along with your valid email address (for verification purpose). It will take only a couple of minutes to finish. So don’t wait. Register today to keep telemarketers away.
