MADISON – The quarterly deadline for Wisconsin’s No Call List is this Friday, August 31st. All registrations that are added on or before Friday will receive protections from unwanted telemarketing calls and text messages beginning on October 1st.
The list is updated four times per calendar year (January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1). The registration process is continuous, but those who sign up after the upcoming August 31 deadline will not be added to the list until January 1.
The free No Call service is managed by DATCP. The service covers Wisconsin consumers’ residential landline, VoIP and cellular numbers and includes protections against unwanted text messages. Consumers can register multiple numbers. Registrations are good for two years, but consumers can re-register their numbers at any time.
Political calls, calls from non-profit organizations and calls made in response to your written or verbal request or permission are not covered by the No Call law. Additional information is at nocall.wisconsin.gov.
Media inquiries or requests for interviews about the No Call List can be directed to Jerad Albracht, Communications Specialist with the Division of Trade and Consumer Protection, at 608-224-5007 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
