FEDERAL DO-NOT-CALL LIST
An uproar against telemarketing calls grew in 2003, the uproar was so loud that the legislator took notice and act. The act was mainly to prevent people getting phone calls from a telemarketer, especially aggressive telemarketer. The law is the Do-Not-Call Registry Act of 2003, enabling anyone to register their phones so that they won’t receive any calls from telemarketers.
