The National Do Not Call Registry
In 2003 the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) opened the National Do Not Call Registry to give consumers the opportunity to limit telemarketing calls.
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) administered the National Do Not Call List in 2004.

I am on the Do Not Call list, but I still keep getting fraudulent calls!
Why? And where can I report it?6. December 2018 at 4:38 #4375
That’s really annoying and unfortunately you are not alone with that problem!
There are two main reasons why you are still receiving unwanted calls even if you are on the Do not call registry:
- Calls from political parties, charities and surveys are legally allowed.
- Scammers ignore the Do not call list/registry. Often they call from overseas with fake numbers and caller ID´s. So if you are getting strange calls after registering on an official Do not call list, the calls are most likely a fraud!
If you want to help to the law enforcement services and protect others, it’s a good idea to report your experience. The following links will help you to find out where to report the different types of fraud calls:
