enveloped your feet in your warm, fuzzy slippers, you lean back in your new La-Z-Boy recliner, piping cup of tea and a good book in hand.
“My name is Clyde Bennett, calling from Swiffer Deluxe...”
You inwardly groan, looking for the moment of escape that never seems to present itself. For the hundredth time you have to tell someone no thank you. Why does this keep happening? Where did they get your number? How can you prevent this from happening over and over?
Your answer: National Do-Not Call Registry. The National Do-Not-Call Registry is a government resource where you can register your number to prevent telemarketers calling it. Once registered for 31 days, telemarketers may not call. If they do, you can register a complaint with the website as well. Visit www.donotcall.gov, and follow the prompts.
