Do NOT Call Me, Scammers!

by Wendy, www.retirement-online.com

Here is the website to register your landline phone or cell phone number to get on the Do Not Call Registry.


They now have another page where, after 30 days of having your numbers registered, you can report calls you still get.

donotcall.gov

I just registered MY phones, again... mostly so I can now keep track of calls I get later. I registered early August so I know by early September I can begin to report them. PLUS -- I know DO NOT CALL is on my site, so I can easily find it with search at the top of any page...

Easy Peasy!

Hope it works better than it used to! They always still call!

Wishing YOU luck too! Dump these scammer calls!

Block Telemarketing and Scammer
by: John A. / Tyler, TX

There is a service available at http://www.nomorobo.com. This service has a huge database of spammers and telemarketers that are blocked from calling you. Free protection for all of your VoIP landlines. There is a nominal fee for cell phone carriers.

I use this service and it has cut down tremendously on the amount of calls I receive. It doesn't block them all. If you get a call, you can report it and it will be investigated and entered into the database they have.

Nomorobo uses a feature known as "Simultaneous Ring". When simultaneous ring is enabled, your phone will ring on more than one number at the same time. The first device to pick it up gets the call and the other phones stop ringing.

So, when the Nomorobo number is enabled as a simultaneous ring number it is the first number to screen the call. If it’s a legitimate call, the call goes through to your number. If the call is an illegal robocaller, Nomorobo intercepts the call and hangs up for you. Your phone will ring once letting you know that the robocall has been answered and stopped.

Nomorobo is currently supported on these VoIP carriers: AT&T U-Verse, Astound Broadband, BroadVoice/PhonePower, Cablevision/Optimum, Comcast, Frontier, Sonic, SureWest, Time Warner, Ooma Premier, Verizon FiOS, Voipo, Voip.ms, Vonage, 1-Voip, and Wave Broadband.

If your carrier is not currently supported you can still help! Please call your carrier and request that they add Simultaneous Ringing to their service so you can finally stop getting robocalls. The more people that call them, the better.

Hope this helps!

Wendy: Wow, John -- it's only $1.99 a month. I think I'll get it for my folks phones too. Mom is so afraid to even say YES on the phone, for fear of being scammed. This will give her some peace of mind, as well as stop my phone from ringing. Thanks!
