Connecticut To Do Not Call Registry: Sign Me Up

by Categorized: Scams, Telecom Date:

The National Do Not Call Registry Data Book for fiscal year 2012, released this week by the Federal Trade Commission, reveals an extraordinary level of participation in the do-not-call program by Connecticut residents.
The state has more than 3 million active registrants from the state. Its 84,147 registrants per 100,000 population ranks it fifth national behind the District of Columbia, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Colorado.
Connecticut residents filed 63,018 complaints during the year.
The registry, which helps ban telemarketers from illegally calling consumers, has 217.6 million actively registered phone numbers, up from 209.7 million the previous year.
The program’s efficiency in keeping up with relentless telemarketers, however, is often questioned. But it’s still worth registering both your home phone and mobile phone. You can do that here.

    I appreciate your comments and while I reregister for the no call list (I’ve been on the list since it’s inception) there is no one policing this list as the number of annoying phone calls has increased at an alarming rate – nineteen in the last thirty days.

    I had just gotten my new phone service and last week the calls have been coming like every 15 minutes. I have a sick husband to care for and they call way into the evening. Please I can’t keep turning the phone off could you please help with these annoying calls asap. Thank you, gf
