- 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.
- 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.
- Don’t trust Caller ID. Scam calls can show up as any name and number, even government agencies.
Helpful tip for avoiding phone scams:
Never answer the phone if you don’t recognize the phone number.
