Telemarketers will face even tougher fines if they violate ‘Do Not Call’ registry, state warns

In an effort to curb unsolicited telemarketing calls, Gov. Kathy Hochul signed into law a significant increase in fines for those ignoring the Do Not Call Registry.


As of Wednesday, violators now face a maximum penalty of $20,000, a jump from the previous $11,000 fine established in 2004.

This move builds upon a law from December 2022, mandating telemarketers to offer customers an immediate option to join the company’s do-not-call list during specific telemarketing interactions.

Gov. Hochul commented on the decision, stating that the steeper fines should dissuade persistent telemarketers and protect New Yorkers from incessant unwanted calls.
