Sixty two million people have taken their name off the telephone list. Yes, you can take your name off the do not call list very easily. My name is Kathy Pabst Robshaw, Total Telephone Effectiveness. Go online; donotcall.gov is the website. You can put in three telephone numbers to have removed. Type in the area code, the telephone number, submit it. The government will then respond to you with an e-mail confirming it. You need to go on the link, reconfirm, and the name is removed. Takes thirty days for it to happen. You should know that legitimate companies that are doing surveys are not obligated to to recognize that you've been put on the do not call list, nor are political companies obligated either. They can call you as well, so be prepared. If they're not calling you now they'll certainly will be calling you. Additionally, companies that use the phone for telemarketing are obligated to run their own computer list against that do not call list, and that way the name is taken off. Should you have companies call you that haven't done that speak to a supervisor and ask to be taken off, and they have to legally take your name off. The good news is in 2007 a law was passed so it's done permanently. You don't have to keep doing it every year which used to be the case, and that got very, very tedious. So, donotcall.gov is the website. Do it immediately; cell phone, home phone, landline phone, not businesses. It's easy to do. Kathy Pabst Robshaw, Total Telephone Effectiveness.
