Caller Type: Political Call
Phone Number Owner: John from Political Opinions
Phone Number Report: Placing one's number on the National Do Not Call Registry will stop most, but not all, unsolicited calls. The DNC Registry only applies to residential lines, not to business lines.
The following are exceptions granted by existing laws and regulations:
(1) calls from political organizations.
(2) calls from non-profit organizations (e.g., charities, religious organizations).
(3) calls from those conducting surveys.
(4) calls from companies with which the called party has an existing business relationship for up to 18 months from the last purchase, payment, or delivery from it, unless person specifically asks the company not to call again.
(5) calls from a company up to 31 days after submitting an application or inquiry to that company, unless the company is specifically asked not to call.
(6) calls from legitimate bill collectors (either primary creditors or collection agencies). However, these calls are generally regulated by State laws, such as those limiting calls to "reasonable hours" or requests by the called party to cease such calls or following filings for bankruptcy protection.
With that said, some spammers get around the DNC Regulations by starting out by saying "This is a survey!" (Liar, liar, pants on fire!)
