CHARLOTTE, NC – Do you hate those annoying “robocalls” that seem to pop in during dinner and homework?
If so, you are not alone. The North Carolina Attorney General’s Office released the following information about illegal robocalls.
Another common robocall claims the FBI has noticed a spike in burglaries in your neighborhood, and suggests that you get an alarm system. The Attorney General's Office is investigating both of these types of robocalls as well as others.
Remember, scammers can manipulate Caller ID so you can’t depend on that to help you sort legitimate callers from scam artists. Joining the Do Not Call Registry can help because if you’re on the registry, you can be even more skeptical of anyone who is still making telemarketing calls to you.
If you have received an illegal robocall, file a complaint at www.ncdoj.gov or contact the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division by calling 1-877-5-NO-SCAM.
