EXCLUSIVE: What To Do About Spam Faxes

An example of a recent Spam fax that came into the AmericaJR.com Office.

Have you ever gotten an unsolicited fax? While there is not a National Do Not Fax List, the FCC does look into consumer complaints.

All you need to do is file an FCC Form 1088.

Just go to fcc.gov, scroll down the left margin of the home page until you get to the bottom third of the page, and you will see a category called "Consumer Center."

Within that category, find and click on "Filing Complaint."

Then, in the top center of the page that pops up, you will see Step One. Find and click on "Telemarketing, Junk Fax, and E-messaging to wireless device." Click on that and you can fill out an FCC Form 1088, and send it by computer, snail mail, or fax to the FCC.

And, like it says, you can also use the Form 1088 for unwanted spam to your cell phone or whatever that gadget in your pocket is called nowadays, a Blackberry, a Rosebud, an I-Whatchamacallit.

According to the FCC: "Fax advertisements must contain on the first page of the advertisement a clear and conspicuous opt-out notice that explains how to avoid receiving future faxes. Recipients must be provided a cost-free way to opt-out of receiving future fax advertisements (by phone, Internet website, or e-mail) and the sender must honor such opt-out requests within no more than 30 days."

"By contrast, the FCC’s fax rules prohibit fax advertisements unless an individual or business chooses to opt-in to receiving them by maintaining a business relationship with the sender or giving prior express permission."

Good luck, and tell us if it helps! I am sure they are backlogged, but it is worth a shot!
