Well now Florida has its own Do Not Call list, in addition to the national list. The state Do Not Call list was set up to give the state an additional avenue to pursue legal action against these scammers. It should cut down on both spam calls and texts originating outside the US.

You can register for one, or both. The Florida list is free and indefinite, meaning you do not pay, and your request will not expire.
