I received a robocall, what do I do?

If you receive a robocall, the best thing to do is to hang up and report the call to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

I received a robocall that I didn’t expect, what do I do?

If you’re receiving unexpected robocalls, there are a few things you can do to stop them. Check your phone’s call history, see who’s calling and block their number. You can also whitelist your number in your phone’s caller ID settings to make it easier to identify calls from people you know.

How do I know if my number is being called by a robocall?

If you get a call that you don’t recognize and it’s coming from an unfamiliar number, it’s probably a robocall. Here are a few tips to help you spot and stop robocalls: Check your caller ID. Most robocalls will display a fake ID that looks like the number you’re expecting. If it’s a call you don’t want to answer, block it. You can add your number to your phone’s Do Not Call list or set up a spam blocker so spam calls won’t even show up on your phone. Report robocalls to your phone company. They may be able to block the number or stop the call from coming through.
