Are you tired of receiving endless calls from car warranty companies trying to sell you an extended warranty? You’re not alone. Many Americans are being bombarded with these annoying and fraudulent calls every day. They use clever tactics to try to get you to buy their product, even if you don’t need it. But what can you do to stop these calls? Here are some tips.
1. Don’t answer calls from unknown numbers
If you don’t recognize the number calling you, don’t answer. If it’s important, the caller will leave a message. Scammers often use numbers that look like they’re from your area code, but they’re actually from somewhere else. It’s best to be cautious.
2. Block the numbers
If you keep getting calls from the same number, you can block it. Most smartphones have a feature that allows you to block numbers. If you have a landline, contact your service provider and ask them to block the number.
3. Join the Do Not Call Registry
The Do Not Call Registry is a free service that allows you to opt-out of telemarketing calls. Once you register your phone number, telemarketers are required by law to stop calling you within 31 days. It won’t stop all calls, but it will reduce the number.
4. File a complaint
If you keep getting calls even after you’ve blocked the number and joined the Do Not Call Registry, file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). They investigate and take action against companies that violate the law.
5. Get legal help
