“Do Not Call List” Deadline Coming Up

Due to a recent surge in reported phone scams, Indiana's Attorney General is urging Hoosiers to sign up for the state’s Do Not Call list. Greg Zoeller says if your number is registered on the Do Not Call list and you receive a solicitation call, it is a violation of the law and you should assume it’s a scam and hang up immediately. Zoeller says his office has also received complaints of Caller ID spoofing, where a scammer falsifies their phone number to mimic a local number. This practice can trick you into answering calls you think are coming from someone you know. The next quarterly deadline to help reduce annoying sales calls and text messages is today. You can register your  residential landline, cell or prepaid wireless numbers.
