The Wyoming "No-Call" Law Business FAQ's
1. Is my business required to comply with the no-call
The no-call law normally applies only if your
business makes more than 225 unsolicited telephonic
sales calls to Wyoming numbers per year.
2. Are there other exemptions ?
The no-call law does not apply to calls made at the
request of the person called, made primarily in
connection with an existing debt or contract (payment or
performance of which has not been completed at the time
of the call), or made to a person with whom the caller
has an established business relationship. Most charity
and political fundraisers are also exempt.
3. Does my business have to join the Direct Marketing
Association in order to obtain the Telephone Preference
Service's do-not-call list?
The law only requires that you do not call Wyoming
numbers that appear on the current DMA list. It does not
require that you or your business join the DMA or
subscribe to the no-call listing.
4. What are the disclosure requirements ?
The no-call law requires that telemarketers disclose
at the beginning of the call the name of the individual
caller, the identity of the telephone solicitor or
merchant and a telephone number and address at which the
telephone solicitor or merchant may be contacted, that
the purpose of the call is to sell consumer goods or
services, and the nature of the goods or services.
5. What filing requirements does the no-call law
Each telephone solicitor or merchant
making unsolicited telephonic sales calls to Wyoming
numbers must file a
statement giving notice of activity and designating an
agent for service of process with the Wyoming
Attorney General's Office.
6. Are there prohibitions against automated sales
Solicitors or merchants are prohibited from making
telephonic sales calls involving an automated system for
the selection or dialing of numbers or the playing of a
recorded message when a connection is completed. Some
uses of auto-dialers are also considered crimes.
