The national No_Call Database is available for registration.
The Colorado law requiring telemarketeers to check with a central database before making calls to residential customers is expected to go into effect July 1, 2002.
Telemarketers are to buy a current list of disallowed numbers and if they make more than three calls a month to such a number, they are subject to a fine of up to $2000.00.
This law does not apply to charities.
A previous unofficial registration (see below) for the no-call list is now expected to be transferred to the official list.
Also, the Direct Marketing Association has a web site that lets you get you name on their list of people who do not want telemarketing calls or junk mail.
Another address for the Direct Marketing Association for this service is -
Keep in mind that there is a 1991 federal law that requires any telemarketer to take your name off their list if you explicitly ask them to do so. A simple "I don't like calls" does not count.
Proposed federal rules to control telemarketeers are available at -
