Robocalls: How to Stop and Block Unwanted Calls at Virtual

Wednesday, October 21, 2020 - 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Audience: Adults

Categories: Virtual, Educational Interest

If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's a robocall. If you're getting a lot of robocalls trying to sell you something, odds are the calls are illegal. Many are also probably scams. In this presentation, staff from the FTC will explain what you need to know about robocalls and what you can do about them. We'll also go over some of the most prevalent scams that robocalls pitch and the red flags of fraud to help you avoid scams.  You may or may not have seen these scams but there's a good chance that someone close to you has. Please join my meeting from your computer, tablet or smartphone: can also dial in using your phone. United States: +1 (872) 240-3412Access Code: 508-138-357
