Robocall Information

Robocalling: What can You do to protect yourself from scammers and robocallers?

  • Read the consumer tips from the Federal Communication Commission ( to stop unwanted robocalls.
  • Register your phone numbers on the Do Not Call List. Although this FTC registry won’t spare you from calls from scammers intent on breaking the law, it should prevent you from receiving “live” telemarketing calls, which are regulated by the federal government but are not illegal.
  • Don’t answer calls from numbers you don’t recognize; legitimate callers will leave a voice mail.
  • Don’t call back numbers you don’t recognize; it could be a one-ring scam. One-ring scams want you to call back the number and then you’ll incur charges.
  • Always check on a charity (for example, by calling or looking at its actual website) before donating.
  • If you think you have been compromised, contact your local law enforcement.
  • Be diligent and don’t give out personal information over the phone.
