How to Stop Calls From Scammers

  1. Hang Up. When you get a robocall, don’t press any numbers to get on a “Do not call” list. This often leads to more robocalls.
  2. Consider blocking or labeling the caller. See what your phone carrier offers to help you block scam calls. There are even apps to help if you have a smartphone.
  3. Don’t trust Caller ID. Scam calls can show up as any name and number, even government agencies.
