One million phone numbers now are on the state’s Do Not Call List, which restricts telemarketers and others from making sales calls to Floridians.
Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam‘s office announced the news Tuesday.
Of those, 928,000 were added since “Putnam worked with the Legislature in 2012 to remove the fee to join,” according to a press release.
The list makes it “illegal for solicitors to call or text numbers on the state’s Do Not Call List, with penalties of up to $10,000 per violation,” the release said.
To get on the list, visit FreshFromFlorida.com, or call 1-800-HELP-FLA (435-7352). Spanish speakers should call 1-800-FL-AYUDA (352-9832).
Each subscriber can enter six phone numbers that will remain active on the list for five years, the release said.
