Earliest registrants nearing end of five-year enrollment
Senator Lisa Baker is reminding local residents that their registration under Pennsylvania’s “Do-Not-Call” program could be close to expiration.
Consumers were able to register for the popular program as of Sept. 15, 2002. Since registrations are for a five-year period the earliest registrants will soon need to renew their registrations, according to Senator Baker.
Under Act 24, 2002, telemarketers are prohibited from calling any residential telephone subscriber whose name, address and telephone number are on the “Do-Not-Call” list.
“Many people enrolled in the program right at the very beginning and now they will have to re-register in order to stay on the list. I strongly encourage residents to take a few minutes to renew their enrollment, or they could again be subjected to unwanted calls,” Senator Baker said.
New registrations and renewals of existing registrations for the “Do-Not-Call” list may be made by either calling a toll-free number 1-888-777-3406 or logging on to a website https://www.donotcall.gov/. More information about the program is also available by contacting Senator Baker’s District Office at (570) 675-3921.
