My family constantly gets phone calls from people we don't know. We're supposed to be on the Do Not Call list but it doesn't appear to be working. Does anyone know how you can determine whether you're on the Do Not Call list?

Haven't a clue--however, I have a feeling that many of these places fall into one of two situations:<br>
1) They're calling despite the list (faking their phone number, and hanging up without saying who they are so there's no way to trace them)<br>
2) Some website/privacy thing somewhere had fine print about by signing up they can share your information (or later changing the rules, and no one noticing)

Also, there are certain types of organizations that are exempt from the Do not call list restrictions.

I'm on the national do not call list and it really did stop the calls. Call the # from your home phone and I think it will tell you if you are on it or not.

Charity organizations, politicians, and anyone with whom you have done business and their associates. Additionally, there is a lag time between the time you sign up and it kicks in. I'm not sure how long.
