    Dealing with Unwanted Calls

    • Unwanted calls including illegal and spoofed robocalls - are the FCC's top consumer complaint and their top consumer protection priority. Most unwanted calls are made from Robocalls, which are calls made with an autodialer or that contain a message made with a prerecorded or artificial voice.
      • Federal Communication Commission (FCC) data shows that the number of complaints about unwanted calls, including robocalls and telemarketing calls, has fluctuated somewhat over the past few years, with 172,000 complaints in calendar year 2015, 150,000 complaints in 2016, 185,000 complaints in 2017, and 232,000 complaints in 2018.
      • The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has brought 140 enforcement actions against companies and telemarketers for abandoned call, robocall and Do Not Call Registry violations. As of December 2018, 121 of these FTC enforcement actions have been resolved, and in those cases the agency has recovered over $50 million in civil penalties and $71 million in redress or disgorgement.
    • If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's a robocall. If youre getting a lot of robocalls trying to sell you something, odds are the calls are illegal. Many are also probably scams.
    • Robocalls often seek personal information, or credit card or banking information. They may also attempt to acquire certain phrases or words, such as questions that will elicit a Yes response, to ultimately use your voice and words to authorize charges on a bill or a stolen credit card.
    • Robocalls may pose as authoritative organizations, such as the DMV, IRS, or Social Security Administration. These calls may announce that a free trip has been won, or that money is owed to the government, or that a donation to a charity is being solicited. Some calls prey on topical subjects such as national tragedies or tax season.
    • Robocalls may employ neighbor spoofing, which makes calls appear to come from a recipients area code.
    • When the phone rings, you may not have enough information to determone whether the call is wanted, unwanted, or illegal. The phone may display Caller ID and possibly a label from their voice service provider or a third-party application. But Caller ID may be spoofed or blocked, and labelers may not have complete information about the calling party. Currently, the only certain way to determine whether a call is wanted or unwanted is to answer it or let it go to voicemail, and hope the caller leaves a message.
    • You can take the following steps to avoid being victimized by robocalls:
      • Register your phone number with the National Do Not Call Registry at donotcall.gov or 1-888-382-1222. This will take effect within a month.
      • If you received an unwanted call after your number was on the National Registry for 31 days, report it to the FTC. Note that after your phone numbers are registered, some other types of organizations, such as charities, political groups, debt collectors and surveys, may still call you.
      • Sellers and telemarketers can go to https://telemarketing.donotcall.gov to access the National Do Not Call Registry.
      • Install robocall-blocking applications (e.g.; Truecaller, RoboKiller, Mr. Number, Nomorobo, Hiya and YouMail) on your smart phone. Many phone carriers, such as AT&T
      • , Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, Cox, and Comcast, often have free services available to reduce unwanted and anonymous calls.
    • There are a number of steps to reduce to be a victim of unwanted call or robotcalls:
      • If a caller claims to be an authority, such as a debt collector, student loan office, or bank, hang up and directly call the office to see if they actually need something.
      • When receiving a phone call you should not press any number, even if it suggests that doing so will take you off their call list, only talking when you have reached a live person.
      • Regularly check your banking, credit card, phone, and cable statements for unfamiliar charges. Dispute anything that you didnt authorize, and demand proof if they claim you were recorded approving the charge. You can also contact the Federal Trade Commission to dispute charges.
