Wisconsin residents who want to be protected from unsolicited
telemarketing phone calls and text messages have until the end of
the month to sign up for the state's 'no call' list.
Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection says if
you've already been on the list, you need to re-register every two
years to stay on it. Consumers who add their names to the list by
May 31st will be protected from solicitors starting July 1.
The free service
includes land lines and cell phones. The list is updated four
times a year — Jan. 1, April 1, July 1 and Oct. 1.
To add your
residential landline or cell phone to the list, call
1-866-9NO-CALL (1-866-966-2255) — or visit http://nocall.wisconsin.gov.
