A reminder for everyone who signed up for the national Do Not Call Registry back in 2003 when it was created: It’s time to renew your spot on the list. Numbers are flushed after five years. About half of the 148 million numbers on the nationwide registry are due to fall off the list starting in June. So you'll need to renew unless you want to start receiving calls to buy vinyl siding or magazine subscriptions. You can call 1-888-382-1222 or use the Internet to verify that you are registered and when your registration will expire. While you’re renewing your phone listing, you might also want to remove your address from junk mail lists. Read our consumer alert for steps you can take.
