unwanted calls are likely from scammers

Someone pretending to be from the FTC is sending out fake emails telling people that their Do Not Call registration is expiring.

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Someone pretending to be from the FTC is sending out fake emails telling people that their Do Not Call registration is expiring.

The emails use the FTC’s logo and send people to a phony Do Not Call website to register their numbers again.

Don’t buy it. Do Not Call registrations never expire. Once you add a number to the Do Not Call Registry, you don’t need to register it again — ever. We only remove your number when it’s disconnected and reassigned, or if you ask us to remove it.

Not on the Registry yet? You can add your phone number at donotcall.gov or by calling 1-888-382-1222 from the phone you want to register. Learn more about the Do Not Call Registry in our FAQs.

Are you already on the Registry and still getting a lot of unwanted calls? Odds are, many of those calls are from scammers.
