Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - John writes in and says he's registered for the "Do Not Call" Registry, but those annoying calls have not stopped and seem to have gotten worse.
You should know that the do not call registry will stop some of these calls, but not all of them and here's why.
The Federal Trade Commission, which manages the registry, cannot stop calls from political organizations, charities and telephone surveyors, as well as calls from businesses with which you've had an existing relationship.
For those calls from businesses, you can request that they stop calling you and they must honor that request.
But if you're on the registry and you've been on it for at least 31 days and the calls from telemarketers don't stop, you can file a complaint online
or you can do it by phone by calling 1-888-CALL-FCC (1-888-225-5322).
