The phone network is a complex web of carriers and solutions providers, making it difficult for most providers to put an end to robocalls for good. Federal Communications Commission recommends registering your phone number(s) on the National Do Not Call Registry at DoNotCall.gov, as it is illegal for any telemarketer to call anyone on the list – whether making a live call or using a prerecorded message.
Because 65% of illegal robocalls occur outside of the United States, it is nearly impossible for the FTC to track, blacklist, and reprimand offenders; especially those of whom ignore the Do Not Call Registry. In 2016, 45% of individuals who registered for the Do Not Call list received a robocall within 10 days of registering.
Other call blocking strategies, such as contacting your phone carrier about a single repeat offender, can be helpful. Carriers have been slow to respond to consumer demands to build wide-scale robocall blocking technologies into their provided services.
The FCC and FTC cannot order phone companies to provide anti-robocall technology, but so far more than 327,000 people have signed this year’s EndRobocalls.org petition calling for carriers to advance their resources available to put an end to Robocalls.
The most comprehensive and effective solution is to download a robocall blocking app for your smartphone. Built specifically to end the robocall epidemic, these apps learn and update constantly through advanced blacklisting technology.
