What NOT to do when you get a robocall at home

What NOT to do when you get a robocall at home

DON'T PRESS ANY BUTTONS WHEN YOU GET A ROBOCALL!

Your phone number is registered with the Do No Call list. And when you do get a robocall you dutifully follow the instructions -- if there are any -- to press 2 to get off their call list. Well stop doing that. The fact is these robocallers simply don’t care about the law or whether you want to hear from them. As a spokesman for the Federal Trade Commission said, "A lot of [robocalls] are fraudulent calls and people who engage in fraud are not going to abide by the Do Not Call registry."

So what can you? Well, sadly, it's a bit time-consuming. First, hang up when you get a robocall. Then visit DoNotCall.gov and register a complaint.
