Here's How You Can Stop Telemarketers from Calling You (in Pennsylvania)

The bad news is: telemarketers can now call cell phones. There is good news, however. If you don't wish to receive calls, etc. from telemarketers, you can opt out - online! There is a link where you can verify your phone number by email. This is great news for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

This website is set up by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. By signing up, you are registering to opt out of telemarketing phone calls for 5 years. Be sure to read more about it on the main page before filling out the email form.

Whether you are hearing, Deaf or Hard of Hearing, be sure to sign up if you wish to end telemarketer calls to ANY of your phones. My husband who works for the Office of Attorney General here in PA and I both opted out.  I also want to give a shout out to the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General and their IT department for setting this up.

Main page with information and phone number for "hearing" people who wish to call in to opt out:  http://attorneygeneral.gov/dnc.aspx

Link for the verification via email form:  http://dnc.attorneygeneral.gov/Register.aspx

Don't delay - register today!
