How can I stop robocalls?

Episode 1722 (15:09)

Roger from North Hollywood, CA
Robo Calls

Roger is getting phone calls saying that his car warranty is about to expire. Leo says that those Robo Calls are phishing scams designed to get you to buy something. Leo advises putting your phone number on the national DoNotCall list and see if your phone carrier offers a blocked call service to prevent them from calling you back. And if you have an iPhone, you can block the phone caller directly. But it's kinda like playing wackamole because most of them spoof their caller ID or just change the outgoing number. Next year, though, the FCC is going to require a "shaken and stir" concept, where all calls will have to be approved by the recipient before the call goes through. If you say no, it just goes away and gets blocked.
