National Do Not Call: What You Can Do

Have you been bothered by robo-calls and scammers?  There is something you can do.  First, know the law and your rights.  The law simply states that telemarketing businesses (as of February 2008) are obligated to honor the National Do Not Call Registry.

Second, regardless of whether or not you registered your phone with the National Registry, if they use a machine to call you, you can still file a complaint.  I strongly feel that no one deserves to be called by a machine.  It's enough that we are spammed on our text and e-mails; now we get spam calls from robots?  Do your part, the more complaints the government gets, the more they can prosecute violators, and the better the law works.
