The Federal Communications Commission receives more complaints about the incessant, automated phone calls than any other telecom issue. They're not just annoying – they can make the recipients vulnerable to scams and other kinds of victimization.
To educate consumers about how to avoid robocalls and protect themselves from scams, the FCC and AARP will host two open "telephone halls." Participants can register for one of two sessions, then dial in to listen and ask questions. The session will also cover what the FCC is doing to create and enforce robocall regulations.
The first session will take place from 10 to 11 a.m. Tuesday, the second will run from 2 to 3 p.m. Tuesday.
