How to Stop Telemarketing and Robo Calls – A Two Step Process…

STEP ONE
The first step to stopping Telemarketing and Robo Calls is to call from your cell phone, to the Government Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) Do Not Call Registery:

The Do Not Call Registry accepts registrations from both cell phones and land lines. To register by telephone, call 1-888-382-1222 (TTY: 1-866-290-4236). You must call from the phone number that you want to register. To register online (donotcall.gov), you will have to respond to a confirmation email.

For more informatioin on Cell Phones and The Do Not Call Registry – Consumer.ftc.gov or go to:

https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0133-cell-phones-and-do-not-call-registry

This stops all legally registered telemarketers, calling from call-center sweat-shops.
To call you using an automated Robo Caller is illegal (not registered with the FTC anyway).
Therefore, most of the calls you receive are from illegal Robo Callers. They also illegally force you to see a local number on your Caller ID, rather than their true number. Even though I’ve been on the DoNotCall.gov Registery since 2004, I now get at least 3-5 of these Robo Calls per day.

STEP TWO
To stop Robo Callers from ringing your phone, you need an App for that. You can go to your App Store and search for “Robo Call Blocker” or Call Blocker and install the App that looks best to you. Some of these are Free Apps.
But, the one I installed, NoMoRobo costs $1.99 a month or only $19.99 per year (with a free 14 day trial). NoMoRobo is an innovative solution, created by the Telephone Science Corporation. They won the FTC Robo Blocker Challenge Award.
