Understanding Automated Calls

Automated calls, also known as robocalls, have become increasingly common in recent years. Whether it’s a prerecorded message from a political candidate or a scammer attempting to defraud you, these calls can be a constant annoyance.

The legality of robocalls varies depending on the purpose and consent. While some automated calls may be legitimate, many are not. Unauthorized robocalls are not only irritating, but they can also be illegal under federal and state consumer protection laws.

Automated calls can interrupt important conversations, disturb your work or leisure time, and even lead to financial loss if you fall victim to a scam. These calls can also invade your privacy, as they often target personal phone numbers without your consent.

Additionally, robocalls can be particularly burdensome for vulnerable individuals, such as the elderly or those with limited English proficiency, who may struggle to navigate their rights and options.

Taking Action to Stop Automated Calls to Your Cell Phone

Register for the Do Not Call List

Start by registering your cell phone number on the National Do Not Call Registry. This free service, managed by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), allows you to opt out of receiving telemarketing calls. While it won’t stop all automated calls, it can help reduce them.

Screen Calls

Take advantage of your cell phone’s built-in features to screen or block unwanted calls. Many smartphones offer call screening options that allow you to filter out suspected robocalls or send them directly to voicemail. You can also download third-party apps specifically designed to block and report spam calls.

Report Violations

If you continue to receive automated calls despite being on the Do Not Call List, don’t hesitate to report violations. File a complaint with the FTC, FCC, or your state’s Attorney General’s office. Providing detailed information about the calls you received, including the caller’s number and the nature of the call, will help authorities take appropriate action. If you lost money due to a robocall scam, report it to the FTC.
