We've been getting a lot of commercial calls lately for mortgage companies, satellite TV dealers and other telemarketers.
I thought they were just breaking the law. Not so, it turns out. Seems that the telemarketing industry got a permanent injunction against my state's "Do Not Call" registry AND my registration with the Feds had expired!
Well, let me tell you, I re-registered my phone just as quick as I figured out the cause of the problem.
To register your phone, or to check on the current status of the registration of your telephone number, go to the National Do Not Call Registry by clicking on the link here. All you have to lose are those annoying telemarketing calls...
