Consumers Union Campaign to Stop Robocalls

September 17th, 2015

According to the Consumers Union, the major telephone carriers have the technical ability to prevent consumers from receiving robo-calls, but have declined to implement changes that could bring an end to these unwanted and irritating sales pitches.  You can sign a petition (https://consumersunion NULL.org/end-robocalls/) requesting that the carriers take action.

According to Consumers Union, “Robocallers invade our homes and privacy. They circumvent the Do Not Call list. And they cost us real money – an estimated $350 million a year is lost to phone scams.  Phone companies can block these calls before they reach you. Yet the companies aren’t doing it.”  Hopefully, with enough consumer feedback, the phone companies will be motivated to take action to help stop robo-calls!
