“The National Do Not Call Registry is a list of phone numbers from consumers who have indicated their preference to limit the telemarketing calls they receive … The FTC’s decision to create the National Do Not Call Registry was the culmination of a comprehensive, three-year review of the Telemarketing Sales Rule, as well as the FTC’s extensive experience enforcing the Rule in the previous seven years.”
Penalties for non-compliance: Telemarketers that violate the Do-Not-Call Rule may be subject to a fine of up to $16,000 per violation.
Please note: This is not legal advice and dealers should always seek the assistance of qualified legal counsel.
