200 Million Numbers on 'Do Not Call List'
This week, the Federal Trade Commission announced that the much-heralded "Do Not Call" list -- best friend to all those who have received one too many jingles from telemarketers -- has reached the 200 million number milestone.
The registry was introduced back in 2003, and as it has expanded over the years, the FTC has brought some very lucrative enforcement actions against companies that violate the sanctity of the list. As the agency notes, both cell phones and land lines can be registered, and you can do it all through the website.
So, unless you have some bizarre affinity for receiving calls from minimum wage workers asking if you're happy with your phone service, sign up today!
