A new law is giving you better protection from telemarketers.
Governor Cuomo signed the Nuisance Call Act on Monday. The act closes what he calls a loophole in the do not call registry.
The new law now requires live telemarketers to give consumers the option to be added to the seller's do-not-call list.
It also requires telemarketers to get a person's consent before sharing or selling their contact information.
