Unnecessary calls or random text messages appear to appear at any time. They bother you at work, interrupt your dinner, or wake you up while you are asleep. I think we all agree that they are a real trouble. Do you know that they may also be a scam?

If your phone number is one of more than 217 million numbers in the Do Not Call Registry, you have taken steps to block most unwanted sales calls. The law allows political calls, charitable phone calls, information calls, calls to your debts, telephone surveys, and calls from companies that do business with you or allow calls.

If you receive unwanted sales calls or robocall-a recorded messages, these messages are being promoted for products or services - this could be a scam. The unethical behavior behind these phones uses an automatic dialer to dial thousands of calls per minute and there is no need to check if these numbers are on the Do Not Call Registry. Do not press a button to ask someone to call or delete from the call list. You will eventually receive more unnecessary calls. Hang up and report to the Federal Trade Commission at or 1-888-382-1222.
