Massachusetts "Do Not Call" Registry
To register for the Massachusetts Do Not Call list, you may call 1-866 -231 -2255 or go directly to the Do Not Call Registry website.
National Do Not Call List
In addition to Massachusetts' Do Not Call list, there is a national “Do Not Call” registry, enacted by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The National Do Not Call Registry allows you to block telemarketing calls. You can call or visit the website to add your landline and cell numbers. Your registration will be effective for five years.
To be added to the FTC's Do Not Call list, you can register online at WWW.DONOTCALL.GOV or call toll-free, 1-888-382-1222 (TTY 1- 866-290-4236) from the number you wish to register.
Registration is free. It is illegal for any third party to contact you offering to add your name to the list for a fee, and the FTC has stated that it will not contact people on the Do Not Call list to verify personal information. If you receive a call from somebody claiming that they can “pre - register” you for the list, or asking to verify personal information in connection to the list, report it to the FTC at http://www.ftc.gov or 1-877-FTC-HELP, or call the Massachusetts Attorney General (AGO). You may file a complaint online with the AGO's Public Inquiry & Assistance Center (PIAC), or contact the PIAC hotline at (617) 727-8400.
