What You Should Know About the National Do Not Call Registry

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, you can file a complaint at this Website. You can register your home or mobile phone for free.


OptOutPrescreen.com lets you opt out of receiving pre-approved, unsolicited credit and insurance offers that come in the mail. You are given the choice of opting out for five years or you can opt out of firm offers permanently. Opt Out reduces the volume of mail you receive which in turn reduces the probability or risk of becoming a victim of fraud.
