Contrary to E-mail circulating the Internet, threats of a telemarketing onslaught commencing next month are not true. Cell phone numbers are not going public, according to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which manages the National Do Not Call Registry.
Telemarketers do occasionally reach cell phone numbers. To prevent this, as well as land line calls, register the numbers on the National Do Not Call list at 1-888-382-1222. Requests must be made from the intended cell phone or land line number as requests from any other phone disallows the request.
It takes about 20 seconds and blocks that phone's number permanently due to the Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007, which became law last February.
Once a phone number is registered, telemarketers have up to 31 days to stop calling. After 31 days, complaints can be filed at 1-888-382-1222 or to www.donotcall.gov. Be prepared to give the name or telephone number of the company violating the do not call order.
