Do Not Call Notification

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) launched the National Do Not Call Registry to give Americans a choice about getting telemarketing calls at home.

To register your number on the Internet: logon to www.donotcall.gov and click on Register Now. If you register online, you will receive an email from www.donotcall.gov as part of the confirmation process and you will need to click on the link in that email within 72 hours after you receive it to complete your registration.

To register your number by telephone: call 1-888-382-1222; TTY call 1-866-290-4236. You must call from the number you want to register. 

After 31 days, most telemarketing calls will stop, however some calls are not covered such as:

• calls from, or on behalf of political organizations, charities, and telephone surveyors

•  calls from companies with whom you have an existing business relationship

• calls from companies you’ve given permission to call

Once you register, 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. And you only need to register once to be on both North Dakota’s list and the national do not call list as one registration simultaneously adds your number to both.

To file a complaint: if your number has been on the registry for at least 31 days, and a telemarketer calls, you may file a complaint with the FTC. Visit www.donotcall.gov or call 1-888-382-1222
(TTY 1-866-290-4236). You’ll need to provide the date of the call and the phone number or name of the company that called you.
