Kansas, Pennsylvania Warn of DNC Scam

Share this article:
Kansas and Pennsylvania, two states where consumers have flocked to register for newly activated do-not-call lists, are warning residents about a scam that claims to register them for the list in exchange for a fee.


More than 180,000 consumers have registered for the DNC list in Kansas, where registration became available Aug. 12 after the state picked a list administrator. In Pennsylvania, more than 200,000 consumers registered for its DNC list the day it became available Aug. 6. Registration for DNC lists in both states is free.


The Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office reported that perpetrators of the scam called consumers, claiming to be with the state, the Better Business Bureau or the Direct Marketing Association, which administers that state's list. The callers offered to put them on the DNC list for $2.50 per month or $299 for 10 years, according to the attorney general's office.
