As technology developed to allow scoundrels to ignore the “Do Not Call” list I began getting two or three junk calls a day.
It turns out there are ways of stopping the crooks. For those still with landlines, a company called Nomorobo has a system that blocks most robocalls. It doesn’t work with every system, but I have ATT’s Uverse and it works just fine with it. I’ve hardly gotten a robocall in the last three weeks. It’s free — they make their money by
collecting from companies.
For those with cell phones, there are a variety of apps that well help block the increasing number of calls there. I use Whoscall for the iPhone, but there are a variety of possibilities.
