View Full Version : For Florida Residents A "Do Not Call List" Heads-Up

For the time being, the FLDNC has waived its fee for inclusion on this "Do Not Call" registry. It's now good for 5 years with no annual renewal. The penalty for telephone solicitors and other nuisance callers is up to $1000/violation.

Florida is now offering free "do not call" listings to protect consumers against unwanted telephone solicitations.The state previously charged $10 for a new listing and $5 for an annual renewal.
A Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services spokesman on Monday said the agency has stopped charging although a new law dropping the fee doesn't go into effect until July 1.
That's because the list is updated quarterly so anyone signing up now wouldn't be added until July 1, anyway.
Another feature of the law is that it allows the department to slap businesses with an administrative fine of up to $1,000 for each violation instead as an alternative to seeking a civil penalty.

Great! I cant wait to register my numbers. Anyone on Android, Comodo antivirus for Android includes a call and text blocker. Comodo is free: just a tip that is along these privacy lines.

You guys had to pay a fee? That is BS. It was always free where I am from but I have not had a home phone in years and luckily, cell phones do not get many of those calls.
