The Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division enforces the law. Telemarketers who violate the law may face prosecution and/or fines;
YOU can sue in a private legal action any telemarketer who violates the law.
Registration simultaneously adds your number to both North Dakota's list and the national do not call list. You only need to register once to be on both lists.
