Stop Telemarketers

Stop unwanted phone calls by signing up for the Do Not Call Registry. It’s fast, free and effective. Telemarketers must stop calling your home phone or cell phone numbers in most cases if you add your numbers to the Do Not Call list.
How To Join the Do Not Call Registry
Call toll free (888) 382-1222 to add your numbers or join by email at  
What If Telemarketers Keep Calling?
Stop telemarketers who keep calling you by filing a complaint with Attorney General Josh Stein.   
If a telemarketer who shouldn't call does anyway, they'll hear from us. 

We’ve taken action against dozens of companies that have broken Do Not Call laws, winning more than $1 million from violators.
Telemarketing Fraud
Some telemarketers aren’t just a bother, they’re criminals out to steal your money and your personal information. If you or someone you know has been scammed by phone, let us know. We work to shut down telemarketing fraud rings, and sometimes we can get your money back.
You can also read about common telemarketing scams, and watch Dialing for Dollars (an excerpt from our consumer protection video Standing Up, Fighting Back), to learn how to avoid telemarketing scams.
