How do I get on The National Do Not Call Registry?
The National Do Not Call Registry is open for business, putting consumers in charge of the telemarketing calls they get at home. The Federal government created the national registry to make it easier and more efficient for you to stop getting telemarketing calls you don’t want. You can register online at WWW.DONOTCALL.GOV or call toll-free, 1-888-382-1222 (TTY 1-866-290-4236), from the number you wish to register. Registration is free.
The Federal Trade Commission, the Federal Communications Commission, and the states are enforcing the National Do Not Call Registry. Placing your number on the registry will stop most, but not all, telemarketing calls.
This site has information for you – whether you’re a consumer interested in signing up for the National Do Not Call Registry, or a telemarketer or seller interested in learning more about your responsibilities related to the Telemarketing Sales Rule.
How do I complete an international call?
Most international numbers can be dialed with Arvig Connections long distance. Begin with the international access code (011) followed by the number. Most people overseas will give out their numbers with the country code included, so, in most cases, you will not need to worry about the country code.
For example, if the number you are trying to dial is 61-234-5678, you would dial 011-61-234-5678 to complete the call.
What is Caller ID "Spoofing"?
Caller ID “Spoofing” is a term used to describe disreputable parties who deliberately falsify the telephone number relayed as the Caller ID number to disguise the identity and originator of the call. If you think you are being “spoofed”, hang up and call the company/person that the call came from to verify the call is legitimate. At this time Congress is considering new laws that would make this practice a crime and permit law enforcement authorities to take action against spoofers.
