How to Stop RoboCalls DEAD
no robo


If you want to stop Robocalls,
  the Nomorobo system is a very good option.  According to Consumer Reports, "Nomorobo [is] free for landlines, costs cell phone users $2 monthly after a 30-day free trial."  The article goes on to say this only works for VoIP Internet-based digital phone service, and not old-fashioned copper-line phone service.  Nomorobo is the focus here, but there are copper-wire service compatible alternatives ($60-$110) discussed in this CR Review.  Read the reviews to get an idea of how well those systems worked.

Personal Testimony:  This blogger has used the Nomorobo method for 2 yr, in conjunction with Comcast VoIP, and has only good things to say about it.  When a robo call comes in, my phone will ring just once.  All legitimate calls will continue to ring normally.   For Comcast users, most of the rejected call numbers (as well as "good" numbers) appear on the TV screen (if I have selected that option), so I know which telemarketers keep trying, day after day in case I'm interested.

  (More Details):
    Wikipedia states, "A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message, as if from a robot. Robocalls are often associated with political and telemarketing phone campaigns." From the FTC:  "We've seen a significant increase in the number of illegal robocalls because internet-powered phone systems have made it cheap and easy for scammers to make illegal calls from anywhere in the world, and to hide from law enforcement by displaying fake caller ID information."  Point being, even though regulations forbid the practice, there are workarounds which evade restrictions and fines, and let telemarketers call you despite you having placed your number on the DNC (Do Not Call list).
    If you want to find out who is making these calls (e.g., if there is  no Caller ID), you can just GoogleBing the phone number (dashes are optional) and it will usually lead you to various sites which keep track of user complaints.  It won't help you stop the calls, but at least you'll know who not to do business with in the future.
