F.T.C TO Upgrade Its “Do Not Call List” System

If you’ve been getting calls from telemarketers and you are on the “do not call list” the Federal Trade Commission is looking to upgrade the system with the your help.

Mike Bannon is the Director of the Bucks County Department of Consumer Protection. He says, the F.T.C. will move forward with improvements on the “do not call list.”

“There will try to see what they can do better. They are taking pubic comments, which is something different that they are doing. We put a link on the Bucks County Consumer webpage where folks can go in and get their voice heard on what the government can do to better support and tweak the “do not call list” to stop those calls we talk about all of the time.”

Bannon, a guest on the WNPV’s AM Edition Tuesday morning, says political calls seeking votes are exempt from the list. You can go to Buckscounty.org to find a link to the Federal Trade Commission’s website to make a suggestion.
