How to Prevent Marketing Phone Calls – Do Not Call Registry

Rating:

The National Do Not Call Registry is available for all USA citizens, where you can enter your phone number and opt-out of telemarketing phone calls. It is managed by the FTC (Federal Trade Commission), a government organization that deal with all types of consumer privacy and safety issues.
