Shutdown shuts down 'do not call' registry

Washington (CNN) – Victims of identity theft or those hoping to sign up for the "National Do Not Call Registry" are getting a cold shoulder thanks to the partial federal government shutdown.

The Federal Trade Commissions website is down, meaning that identity theft victims looking for advice on what steps to take won't be able to obtain the information. It also means consumers trying to limit the number of telemarketing calls they receive by signing onto the national registry are also out of luck.
