Is It My Imagination or Did I Fall off the Do Not Call Registry List?


do not call registryThe last I heard it was an $11,000 fine to call a phone number that was listed on the National Do Not Call List.  I have been on the list since it started. And, for the most part I really haven’t been bothered by telemarketers. It’s really never been a problem at all, until October of this year…just before the Presidential election.  Then, the calls started flooding my home.  Hmmm,,, I thought, very peculiar.  I probably got about 5 a week. 

So, I checked my registration at the Do not Call website and confirmed that my information and phone numbers were in fact still registered.  The information indicated that a registration does not expire.

The calls continued to flow in, even after the election.  Each new call I received, I told the solicitor to please not call me any longer as I was on the Do Not Call Registry.  So, I reregistered.  I know that it takes 31 days for the telemarketers to take you off their lists.

I waited my 31 days, and STILL I am receiving sales calls, from all different types of places.  I verified my registration and I am in fact registered. 

I just don’t get it.

Why am I receiving telemarketing calls when I am on the National Do Not Call Registry?

Has anyone else had this problem before?
