The ‘do not call’ list is a list of phone numbers in the United States that telemarketers are not allowed to call. This is maintained by the Federal Trade Commission and consumers can contact the agency to register their numbers. When telemarketers call a number that is included in the list, they are fined. However if a consumer has a pre-existing relationship between a political organization, charity, surveyor or company, these calls are allowed although rules must be followed. The registration is effective usually three months after you apply. After this, telemarketers can call to take surveys or donations but they can never sell.
