Tired of Unwanted, Unsolicited Telemarketing Calls? Help May be on the Way

Tired of Unwanted, Unsolicited Telemarketing Calls? Help May be on the Way
BY REGINA WILDER
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Nancy Pinkin, Wayne DeAngelo and Timothy Eustace to prohibit unsolicited telemarketing sales calls to commercial mobile service devices was given final legislative approval in the Assembly on Monday, 76-0.

Currently, the national “no call list” law prohibits all telemarketing sales calls from being made to cell phones, except that a cell phone service provider may call its own customers.

“The statewide “no call list” has helped to end intrusive telemarketing calls to New Jersey homes,” said Pinkin (D-Middlesex). “The law must be expanded to stop telemarketing companies from now targeting residents’ cell phones.”
