Deadline for no-call list approaching
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The deadline to sign up for Wisconsin's no-call list is Saturday.
Anyone who signs up by that deadline will receive protections from unwanted telemarketing calls starting Jan. 1.
The list is updated four times a year but those who miss Saturday's deadline won't be added to the list until April 1. Registrations are good for two years.
The free service is managed by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. The service is available for residential, voice over Internet and cellular phones.
Political calls, calls from nonprofit organizations and calls made in response to a written or verbal request or permission are not covered.
You can sign up for the no-call list by calling 1-866-9NO-CALL (1-866-966-2255) toll-free in Wisconsin. Or by visiting the Wisconsin No Call List website.
