A: No. Placing your number on the National Do Not Call Registry will
stop most, but not all, telemarketing calls. Some businesses are exempt
from the national registry and still can call you even if you place
your number on it. Exempt businesses include:
long-distance phone companies
banks and credit unions; and
the business of insurance, to the extent that it is regulated by state
All the above text has now disappeared from their site !
this is looking kind of off topic, but...
most of those extemptions existed because the industries in question were
being regulated by a different commission.
said commission had the authority to buy into the do not call list. they
have done so, and so the extemptions have mostly gone away. i think
politicians can still pester you for money at dinner time, though.
