Do Not Call Registry

If you are receiving unwanted telemarketer calls, you may register for the National Do Not Call Registry.

It is not possible to block unwanted spam calls via any method other than the Do not Call list currently.

However if you are receiving threatening calls or other calls with possible criminal activity please contact University Police at (903) 233-4444

Illegal Calls and Robocalls

The Do Not Call Registry relies on telemarketers to follow the law and respect the list. Legitimate telemarketers should respect this list because the penalties for violating it are steep.

Some automated phone dialers are legally used by marketing companies, but most are "robocalls" which are operated by illegal actors.

Unfortunately, Robocallers, Caller ID Spoofers and other illegal callers do not respect the Do Not call list. However the FCC is working with the voice industry to try to reduce the ability for them to successfully imitate numbers other than their own.
