NBC4 Responds: How to Stop Robocalls

You pick up the phone and immediately regret it -- another robocall.

Below, a few tips to avoid the annoying calls:

  • Join the "do not call" registry at donotcall.gov
  • Don't pick up if you are not familiar with the number, let it go to voice mail
  • If you don't know who it is - block it!
  • If you get a call from someone claiming to be the "do not call registry," hang up. The registry would never call you.
  • Block text spammers
  • If all else fails, complain by filing an FTC complaint
