Stop Robocalls !

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.
