Heard from any robots lately? You're not the only one. Robocalls are exploding. There were 4 billion robocalls placed nationwide in July 2018 alone, up from 2.6 billion the previous year.

i am registered with Aussie 'Do Not Call' but some still manage to get through!
Usually if i don't recognise the number i don't answer & they have to leave a message which is free!
i like the sound of the call-blocking app but i don't have a smart-phone!

I'm registered with the "Do Not Call" and also "Nomorobo". I will check the call-blocking app.
Thanks Freya

I've listed my phone # with The Do Not Call registry and I still get robo calls. :-(

Asian telemarketers (or whatever they are) pay no attention to 'do not call'. I get 2 -3 l calls a day. I just don't answer the phone and they hang up when it gets to the message. Or, someone speaks and I pick up the phone. I refuse to spend time talking to these people.

Luckily, I am not too bothered by these calls but I know some people get so many it drives them crazy. I simply don't answer calls from numbers I don't recognize. If it is a legitimate call they can leave a message.
