How to Add Your Number to the National Do Not Call Registry
The National Do Not Call Registry has a website that you can go to and simply add up to 3 phone numbers that you would like to have on the National Do Not Call list. You can visit the website by clicking HERE. You can also call 888-382-1222 from the phone you wish to register. If you choose to do so by visiting their website you will be asked to verify your request by email and once you have clicked on the link you are entered into the system.
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 call 888-382-1222 from the phone you wish to register, or go click on “Register a Phone Number” in the left column of this page.
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. Read more about it at http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2008/04/dncfyi.shtm.
