OKLAHOMA’S DON’T CALL ENFORCEMENT
This Consumer Registry lists the telephone numbers of Oklahomans who don’t want unsolicited telemarketing calls and have properly registered with the Oklahoma Attorney General. The Act prohibits telemarketers from contacting Oklahomans on the list, with some exceptions that were written into law. Registering should reduce the number of telemarketing calls you receive. You are able to register by calling 405-521-3921 or online at the OK Attorney General’s website at no cost to you. The registration will remain in effect until you remove it or discontinue service. The list is updated on a quarterly basis.
NATIONAL DO NOT CALL REGISTRY
This registry is nationwide in scope, applies to all telemarketers (with the exception of Commission (FTC), of certain non-profit organizations), and covers both interstate and intrastate telemarketing calls. Commercial telemarketers are not allowed to call you if your number is on the Do Not Call Registry, subject to certain exceptions. As a result, consumers can, if they choose, reduce the number of unwanted calls to their homes. Telephone solicitation calls to your home before 8 am or after 9 pm are prohibited. Anyone making a telephone solicitation call to your home must provide his/her name, the name of the entity on whose behalf the call is being made, and a telephone number or address at which you can contact the entity. Company-specific do-not-call lists are available to consumers who wish to avoid telemarketing calls only from specific companies. For more information go here. You can register your phone numbers for free, and they will remain on the list until you remove them or discontinue service – there is no need to re-register numbers. The Do-Not-Call registry does not prevent all unwanted calls. It does not cover the following:
- Calls from organizations with whom you have established a business relationship
- Calls for which you have given prior written permission
- Calls which are not commercial or do not include unsolicited advertisements
- Calls by or on behalf of tax-exempt non-profit organizations.
