New York law protects people from unwanted commercial calls

NEW YORK – Governor Cathy Hochul signed legislation Tuesday to crack down on unwanted commercial calls. Telemarketers are required by law to offer customers the option of being added to a do not call list at the beginning of certain business calls.

The new law will help protect New Yorkers from constant spam calls.

“We are stepping up our efforts to exempt New Yorkers from unsolicited telemarketing calls,” Governor Hochul said. “For too long, New Yorkers have dealt with these annoying calls, not knowing that they can prevent these interactions by adding a telemarketer to their do not call list. This new law will better protect New Yorkers from unwanted and frustrating calls. Will prevent calls from being received. Information about Do Not Call lists.

The measure requires telemarketers to offer customers the option of being added to the company’s do not call list at the beginning of certain telemarketing calls, immediately after the telemarketer’s name and the applicant’s name. Under current law, telemarketers must notify people that they can request to be added to their company’s do not call list. However, consumers often hang up before mentioning a telemarketer or recording on the Do Not Call list, which leads to telemarketers calling them again and again.

By providing consumers with Do Not Call list information at the beginning of telemarketing calls, this legislation will ensure that New Yorkers are protected from persistent and unwanted calls.
