  • Any security issued or guaranteed by any federal credit union or any credit union

Exam Tips and Tricks
You can expect a question on the test regarding the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991, which states that organizations must do the following:
  • Maintain do-not-call lists. When a prospective recipient of a call asks to be put on the list, the firm must keep his or her name on record for 10 years.
  • Make sure that reps understand how to use the list and immediately record any names and phone numbers of people who wish to be on the do-not-call list.
  • Only call homes of prospective clients between the hours of 8:00 AM and 9:00 PM in the customer\'s time zone.
