The Do Not Call List was established to protect consumers from unwanted telemarketing calls. Despite being on the list, however, some consumers still receive unsolicited calls from companies. If you have received unsolicited calls, there are steps you can take to report the violation and hold the company accountable for their actions.

Step 1: Register with the Do Not Call List

If you haven't already, register your phone number with the Do Not Call List. This will help prevent most unsolicited telemarketing calls from legitimate companies. However, it won't stop all calls, especially those from fraudulent or illegal companies.

Step 2: Keep a record of the call

When you receive an unsolicited call, take note of the date and time of the call, the company that called, and the purpose of the call. This information will be helpful when reporting the violation.

Step 3: File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)

You can file a complaint with the FTC online or by calling their toll-free number. The FTC investigates violations of the Do Not Call List and can take legal action against companies that violate the law. However, the FTC does not represent individual consumers in court, and it may take time for them to investigate and take action on your complaint.

Step 4: Contact a lawyer

If you have received unsolicited calls despite being on the Do Not Call List, it's important to contact a lawyer who specializes in Do Not Call List violations. An experienced lawyer can help you understand your rights, determine if a violation has occurred, and represent you in court if necessary. They can also help you seek compensation for any damages you may have suffered as a result of the violation.


Unsolicited calls can be frustrating and even frightening. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to protect yourself and hold companies accountable for violating the Do Not Call List. If you have received unsolicited calls, follow these steps and contact a lawyer for the best chance of seeking justice.
