United States: National Do Not Call Registry
While the DNC list is not growing at the same rate as when it first launched in 2003, more and more people are signing up every day. At the end of 2010, the FCC report estimates approximately 672 million phone numbers are assigned to a person or company. The FTC also estimates that over 183 million numbers were on the National Do Not Call list by 2010. From these numbers, it is estimated that over 25% of the assigned phone numbers in the US are signed up for the National Registry. A report by the Bush Administration in 2007 estimates that up to 72% of Americans had registered on the list. During the same period, the CTIA estimates approximately 303 million of those phone numbers were wireless meaning that approximately 45% of issued numbers are wireless. While wireless numbers do not need to be included on the registry to avoid unsolicited calls, consumers may still add their wireless number to the list. FCC regulations prohibit the use of automatic dialers from calling cellular numbes under any circumstance. Learn more about the Do Not Call list including how to sign up. Since 2005, any number added to the Natiional Registry will remain unless the number becomes invalid, disconnected, reassigned, or the owner of the number requests removal.
Popularity by State
The map below shows the number of registrations on the DNC list per 100k residents as of Sept 2016.
Recorded Messages: The Rise of the Robocall
While the growth of new registrations has slowed, the number of complaints filed is growing every year. Over 5 million complaints were filed with the FTC in 2016 - more than ever before.
On September 1, 2009, the National Registry began accepting all complaints regarding calls using a recorded message, regardless of the registration status of the called number. As you can see from the graphs below, a great deal of those complaints were filed against auto-dialed calls that play a recorded message (aka. robocalls). While around 43% of complaints reported in 2010 were due to robocalls, that percentage skyrocketed over the next few years to 64% in 2016.
Total Complaints by Year
Complaints for Recorded Messages
* Stats are only available prior to Oct 2016. The remainder of the year is estimated.
The DNC list will not stop all unsolicited calls. The following types of calls are still legal.
- The registry applies to residential lines only (no business lines can be registered)
- Calls from political organizations
- Calls from non-profits
- Calls for surveys
- Calls from companies which the consumer contacted in the past 31 days unless the company is asked not to call
- Calls from debt collectors
Canada: National Do Not Call List
The Canadian Do Not Call list has been administered by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) since 2006. Like the DNC list in the US, phone numbers do not need to be resubmitted, but there are exemptions for some unsolicited calls like charities, political organizations, pollsters, and businesses with a prior relationship just like in the US. In addition to registering with the national list, Canadians are encouraged to request to be added to each internal company's list of numbers not to call each time they receive an unwanted call.

United Kingdom: Telephone Preference Service (TPS)
The TPS was introduced in 2009 and revised in 2003. It is regulated by the Office of Communications (Ofcomm), enforced by the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), and run by the Direct Marketing Association (DMA). Like the Do Not Call lists of the US and Canada, resubmitting or renewing a number already on the list is not necessary. Unlike other countries, the TPS prohibits charities, voluntary organizations, and political parties from making calls to numbers on the TPS with prior consent to do so. However, exceptions do exist for debt collectors. They are not required to screen the numbers that they call through the TPS.

Caller name: Unknown
Left a message saying I was going to be arrested if I didn't call them back immediately. Voice was computer generated. Demanding $11,000 and said they work for the department of the treasury.
Called them back while I had my cars dashcam and Bluetooth speakers on. No answer. Generic voice-mail when calling back.
Too bad, I was going to waste so much of their time while going on a road trip today.
Caller name: Stated he was with Windows
I just recieved a call from this # a male with an India accent stated that he was with Windows & that my computer is & has been sending alerts about being maleware infected. I stated that was impossible. He asked if I thought he was lying. I replied; Yes, I do. He then hung up without a cordial end to the call. My computer is new with protection & has not been linked to the Internet outside of the initial set-up that was done in store. This is a SCAM. ...
Caller name: I didn't get it his accent was to thick
I tried calling the number using my web phone. The phone number has a West Los Angeles area code. What I got was an IP address routed out of the country. This caller is not in the USA and is using a false phone number. MCI Worldcom Communications has no record of this phone in their database. Where ever he is calling from, he must be very bored and lonely. In his culture it may be acceptable but not in the USA. He must think it is safe for him to call people in this country. I reported his IP address and what little I could understand to Home Land Security. They are the ones who deal with stuff like this. Not the Justice Dept., FBI or The Dept. Of Consumer Affairs etc.

Since I'm on the 20 cent per text and 10 cent a minute rate, each time this caller calls unwanted/spam, I get charged either 10 or 20 cents a minute for recordings or 20 cents for text messages. Please don't send any calls to my cell phone as I'm charged each time someone calls. We are very elderly, hard of hearing senior citizens and do not want anyone calling us that we don't want calling us. We buy from stores in our neighborhood and don't answer calls from solicitors. We don't owe money. Please stop calling us, whoever those callers are. We don't speak other languages either. Thanks. To all business callers: Please remove our number as we're on the do not call list. Thank you.
Caller name: Ajay Singh
I receive calls from this number numerous times a week and sometimes more than once a day. I picked up once months ago only to have them hang up once I began to speak. If you try calling the number it'd always busy.
Yet another unwanted call from this invalid (spoofed) toll-free number arrived today, less than 3 weeks since the last unwanted call on Feb. 9. Once again, when the answering machine picked up, the caller left no message, just dead space. Robocallers (unlawful telemarketers) often spoof their numbers to cover their tracks while trolling the phone lines seeking gullible schmucks to victimize.
Some posters report this is an out-of-work contractor (possibly unlicensed). The phone lines are already teeming with scam contractors, scam police charities, scam solar energy vendors, scam vacation giveaways, and other assorted turds. A scam is a scam is a scam.
DO NOT BECOME A VICTIM OF THESE TELECRIMINALS. LET YOUR ANSWERING MACHINE TAKE THEIR PATHETIC CALLS.
Person called and said they were with the US Treasury and that I have a grant for 9,000 dollars. I entertained it for a second, making sure to not give any information besides what they already had. Finally, he asked my age and If I was employed. Then told me to call 202.888.4016 as soon as I got off the call and give an ID code that was given to me. But it seemed weird so I didn't call and decided to research instead. Glad I read the comments and complaints before calling the number. Has anyone else called the number provided?
Caller name: DFC Legal

Caller name: Calling regarding California Care Coverage
This company calls me at least 1/2 a dozen times a day all hours.
I have answered twice, told them to not contact me ever again or I'll report them.
The calls still continue.
Caller name: No Name
Left message as had 24hr to respond before legal action. Called, did not identify themselves or what they were after other than a settlement. When I pressed they said it was for a CC over 14 years old. When I informed them I wanted written proof, that is required by my state law,they refused and threatened me with civil action. I refused and they hung up on me. Before you scam someone better know your state laws.
Caller name: Windows Technical Support
Getting tired of getting these calls...I get them a couple of times a week. Seems someone with an Indian accent calls and says they are calling from Windows Technical Support and I have a problem with my computer. Got one today and the guy on the other end started making fun of me when I questioned him. I understand that reporting this number won't really do much....they will just move on to another.
Caller name: ALA
These people call me once a day, EVERY day. Caller ID shows "ALA", but they use various phone numbers, but all show area code 202. Other numbers used are: 650-6149, 770-2406, and 770-2489, so far. Why an't these people be stopped?
Caller name: Didn't state
This number keeps hijacking my computer and has where I have to keep signing off and logging back on. It has become annoying because I called the number and the guy has no idea what I was talking about and was very rude to me. He was a foreign guy and sounded middle eastern.
Caller name: No bame
This number calls me second time in a couple days and it's a lady who is recording and wants to know if I can hear her. I believe she's waiting for me to say yes so she can use my voice to verify that I had said yes for something. I believe it's a spam tracking your voice
Got a call from them today and missed it since my volume was off. When I tried to call back there was an indian voice saying they were experiencing high call volumes at the current time. 100% likely a scam or fraud phone call. I hung up within a few seconds of trying to call back because I don't want to deal with people who can't speak english well anyway.
Caller name: CITI Bank
This number has called me numerous times daily for the past two weeks. I have not spoken to anyone directly but the voicemail states that they want me to log into my Citibank account to review it. I have not logged in since receiving the calls
Caller name: Springfield IL
The call is criminal in nature because it failed to provide an opt-out at the beginning of the robo-call and failed to ID the company responsible. The actual loudness was so subdued that the message could not be understood other than there is no problem with the credit card. The call terminated without providing an opt-out.
Caller name: Debt Relief U.S.A.
The guy asked for me, by name. I did not acknowledge who I am, asked who is calling and he said he is Alex (Now, we all know his name is something like Aneesh, or Sanjay) and he is calling from Debt Relief U.S.A. I told him I have no debt, to take me off the call list and never call me, again.
I'm going to carry my lifeguard's whistle with me to blow, loudly into the phone, when these subhumans call. That'll keep Krishnamurthy's ears ringing for a while. Then I'll block the number!
this company said that i had a civil law suit pending against me for a credit card I personally never had back in 2004. it is now 2017 and I did not see this so called capital one card on my credit report. they said i accumulated $971 in charges and if it goes to court i have to pay 1893. is this company a scam or not. My husband asked questions about what firm they work for and they hung up on him 2x
Caller name: Rush Processing
I just had the same exact thing happen to me with an alleged T Mobile account dating back to 2005! They said they are serving me with legal papers today and I need to be home to accept the summons or else there will be a judgment entered against me. Mind you I have no recollection of such account we are in 2017! They said account went idle in 2013....even if that was the case there is a two year statues of limitations. There needs to be a clause action lawsuit against this company.
I received a link to your message by a consumer who is on record with our company . please do not hesitate yo call me personally if you need duplicates of your paid in full documentation. My telephone number is 877-211-9342 ext 402

can't spell sincerely right?????
Foreign accent man calling himself "Larry" said I won Publishers Clearing House and a new Mercedes Benz. Said I should go to Bank Of American and wire $1010.00 to him and then they would send me winnings and car. Kept calling me sweettie with each request. Said the Attorney General had given clearance for prize so taxes can be collected. Became agitated when I began to ask questions and then started using the "F" word saying I was not being cooperative and I had better do as he's telling me. HAHAHA
What an idiot! Took up about 40 min of his time, then hung up.
Caller name: merchant services
Woman called and said she was from our merchant services account and wanted to let us know about the "flags" on our account. We wer paying retail rates on our debit cards and she wanted to "help us". When I pushed her on where she was from she got defensive and I hung up on her. It's a SCAM... big time.
Scam, they left partial message, for delivery of "Important Documents" Maybe some one in Nigeria has 6.5 million USD waiting for me? I called and wanted to leave a message but mailbox was unable to accept messages. Darn, and I hoped they call back to my P.D, I'll try again later.
Caller name: pyramid scheme
This scammer calls numbers on the national do not call registry in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. They further violate the TCPA by failing to have an operator on the line when the call is answered, and still further by playing a recorded message without an operator on the line. They fail to provide a physical address and a phone number when asked, still further violating the TCPA. Their recording states that the victim has been selected to be trained to receive thousands of dollars every week just by using their marketing system with nothing to sell. Their recording also states that the victim can be removed at any time, which is clearly a lie, as after multiple requests, this scammer continues to repeatedly call. This is clearly a pyramid scheme. Do not provide this scammer with any personal information.
they keep calling and won't stop, they call 8-10 times per day at all hours. I have tried option #2 to opt out, several times, but it doesn't work they just keep calling, if you agree to take survey by pressing #1 they ask you to input personal info. SCAMMERS, HARASSING SCAMMERS
