ROBO CALLS

ROBO CALLS

Have been reading your complaints about these calls.  I also receive a large number of unwanted calls from a variety of sources.  Many calls, when you check your called ID, you find that when you call the number back its " OUT OF SERVICE" or "NOT A WORKING NUMBER" or its a voice call from a "FAX LINE".  How can these calls be getting through ?   I've considered using the NOMOROBO but I also receive calls from my pharmacy to tell me my prescriptions are ready and that would probably stop those legitimate service calls from coming through..  What a problem we have with no solution in sight..  Comcast cannot give you an answer when querried about the problem so I guess well just have to live with it.   I even have gotten calls from unknown sources and when you check caller ID my own number is on the call and I certainly did not call myself. Oh well !!  Thanks for the chat  Mr. Ray.........

I use NoMoRobo and all of my legitimate calls from Pharmacies, Doctors, Mechanics, Friends all come through just fine.  The call is blocked IF the number is resident in NoMoRobo's database of known ABUSERS....

 

Your own number calling you is a trick that abusers use to get around the rules... you can read about that in this FCC link:   http://www.fcc.gov/guides/caller-id-and-spoofing

Re: ROBO CALLS

We use nomorobo and have had zero problems with wrongfully suppressed calls, even from our pharmacy.  It appears to be very accurate.
