Don’t Buy the Scam. ‘Do Not Call’ Registrations NEVER Expire.

Download PDF

Someone pretending to be from the FTC is sending out fake emails telling people that their Do Not Call registration is expiring. The emails use the FTC’s logo and send people to a phony Do Not Call website to register their numbers again.

Don’t buy it. Do Not Call registrations never expire. Once you add a number to the Do Not Call Registry, you don’t need to register it again — ever. We only remove your number when it’s disconnected and reassigned, or if you ask us to remove it.
