Updating do not call list
Wisconsin uses the National Do Not Call list for registrations.
To verify that your number is registered, check through the federal website or call 1-888-382-1222 (TTY: 1-866-290-4236). Wisconsin residents who sign up for the National Do Not Call Registry are protected by both the federal Do Not Call law and by Wisconsin’s telemarketing laws.
If your number is on the Do Not Call Registry and you receive an unsolicited sales call, it’s probably fraudulent. SIGN UP HERE for the Wisconsin Do Not Call Registry.
Registration on the Wisconsin Do Not Call Registry is permanent.
If you receive a call from a telemarketer after 31 days, file a complaint.
The Do Not Call Registry is a tool to reduce the number and frequency of unwanted calls.
Treat your phone like your wallet—keep it safe and with you at all times.
Scrubbing a list using a manual method consists of downloading all of the do not call phone numbers from the National Do Not Call Registry in the area codes for which you are registered, then combining the lists into one do not call list, then checking this list of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of numbers you have just downloaded from the National Do Not Call Registry against the phone numbers on your lead list, if you have that kind of time and patience.
