Still Receiving Calls? -- The ISBA Talks Telemarketing Recourse

Question:  I still receive phone calls from telemarketers, even though I registered my phone number with the National Do Not Call Registry. What can I do?   Answer:  Both federal and state laws prohibit telemarketers from contacting you - permanently - if you have signed up on the Registry's Web site. Calls from political organizations, charities and phone surveyors are excluded. By law, all calls must be made after 8 a.m. and before 9 p.m. Telemarketers are required to identify themselves with their name, the company they represent and a phone number at which their company can be reached.
