Robocall FAQs

Spam Text FaQ
Why do I receive robocalls?
Expand

You may be receiving robocalls because scammers have gotten a hold of your phone number, either because it is publicly available online (like in your social media profile), was exposed during a data breach, or was sold by a third party.

It’s possible you were specifically targeted, but most commonly robocalls are autodialed (autodialing technology allows spam calls to be made to a high volume of almost random numbers).

Your phone number may also be on a list of people who have previously engaged with a robocall or phone scam (scammers often share these lists with each other).

How can I tell if a robocall is a scam?
Expand
