Robocall Invasion (NPR Planet Money Podcast)

Spam calls from telemarketers are nothing new. Today, however, consumers are getting harassed by calls that are designed to appear as if they are coming from your same area code – but in reality, the calls may be coming from across the world. This is called “spoofing,” and it’s a growing problem. This NPR Planet Money episode explores this issue, why it’s happening, and what can be done to stop it. Listen below.

    Robocall problem has been the most complained problem in our country. I personally get 2 – 3 calls from telemarketers each day. I think the authority should think about how we could make them stop. I just read an article at http://www.whycall.me/news/my-4500-payday-from-a-telemarketer/ about someone who sued a company after getting multiple robocalls. I think this is the best way we could do to make those companies stop robocalling us.
