take effect April 1, 2013.
“The Do-Not-Call registry provides consumers with one more tool to block
annoying telemarketing calls and text messages,” Zoeller said. “It’s
important to remember that if your number is on the list and you receive a
sales call or text message it’s likely a scam. You can then file a complaint

Zoeller said the federal Do-Not-Call law is not as strict as Indiana’s law,
but registering can afford consumers further protection from unwanted calls
or text messages.
