If you have a phone, you probably get robocalls. These unwanted telemarketing calls—often used by scammers - are annoying, distracting and a real invasion of your privacy. And yet, there's no way for you to stop them.
Law enforcement tries to go after the people who thumb their nose at the law, but they're often based in foreign countries and very good at using computer technology to hide their tracks.
"We're using every tool we have," said Lois Greisman, associate director of marketing practices at the Federal Trade Commission. "We tightened the rules about robocalls and aggressively brought cases to shut down robocallers. But, unlike the Lone Ranger, we don't have a silver bullet to end invasive robocalls."
So, the calls go out and the complaints pour in.
Robocalls make up the largest number of complaints to both the Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC alone receives more than 200,000 robocall complaints per month.
Finally! No More Annoying Robocalls and Telemarketers.
How Does Nomorobo Work?
Nomorobo uses a feature known as "Simultaneous Ring". When simultaneous ring is enabled, your phone will ring on more than one number at the same time. The first device to pick it up gets the call and the other phones stop ringing.
So, when the Nomorobo number is enabled as a simultaneous ring number it is the first number to screen the call. If it’s a legitimate call, the call goes through to your number. If the call is an illegal robocaller, Nomorobo intercepts the call and hangs up for you. Your phone will ring once letting you know that the robocall has been answered and stopped.
