Attorney General Steven Rowe today applauded the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) announcement that its do not call list is open for business. The Maine Attorney General’s Office will soon forward to the FTC the necessary information so that the approximately 90,000 Mainers who have used the AG’s website to sign up for the Maine do not call list will not have to re-register for the federal list. After the Maine data is transmitted, the State will begin directing consumers to the federal trade commission to register.
Attorney General Rowe said, “We are very pleased to have provided this valuable service to Mainers for the past several months. With the federal list up and running, it is time for us to fold our list into it and move on to other consumer protection activities. Our mission with the do not call list is accomplished for now.”
