Harassing Phone Calls


Helpful Tips

 

Contact your phone service provider, as noted on your telephone bill, with the report number you receive at the end of this process. Follow your phone service provider's instructions and keep track of when calls occur and the number they are from (if you have caller ID).

How can I stop telemarketing calls?



The easiest and most effective way to prevent telemarketing calls is to register your home and personal phone number(s) with the National Do Not Call Registry operated by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

You can sign up for the Do Not Call Registry by calling toll-free: (888) 382-1222 (TTY: 866-290-4236) or online at: www.donotcall.gov
