New Law May Help Consumers Against Telemarketers

Albany, N.Y. - A new law may help you with those pesky telemarkerter calls.

The law, set to take effect early next year, will close a loophole that allowed "live" telemarketers to call people, even if their phone number was on the Do Not Call Registry.

Governor Cuomo signed the bill into law, which mandates telemarketers to have a consumer's written consent before their contact information can be shared or sold.

The legislation is set to take effect in 90 days.
