The TCPA: Federal Telemarketing & Robocall Laws
According to the TCPA, robocalls are illegal in all 50 states unless the company has obtained express written permission from the person they're calling.
Because all types of robocalls are banned in North Dakota, you don't need to wonder if you've previously given express written permission. If you've received robocalls on your cell phone or landline, the person calling you has broken the law.

- The type of phone where you were contacted (cell phone or landline).
