Ask yourself these questions.
Recent advances in technology and dramatically lower long distance call costs have made it possible for tele-criminals anywhere in the world to call you at any time.
Tele-criminals usually disguise themselves by using ever changing, erroneous and misleading caller ID’s. Unwanted calls cost Americans billions of dollars each year and a LOT of aggravation.
Unfortunately, the government is almost completely helpless in finding, prosecuting or recouping losses from international tele-criminals. Although phone providers now have the ability to reduce many of these unwanted calls for their customers, they have been lackluster in implementing the necessary processes. Consequently, these unwanted and often dangerous calls have escalated dramatically and will continue to do so unless we protect ourselves.
The key to a universally effective solution to stopping unwanted calls is to influence every computer calling you by jamming their processors, much like the military jams enemy radar, rendering it useless.
Technology is now available that will consistently defeat unwanted robocalls while still allowing friends, family and all wanted calls to reach you. Call your phone service provider for the call blocking service they currently offer or plan to offer in the near future.
This presidential election showed how important each person’s vote is. Although political robocalls will now subside, the epidemic of all other unwanted telemarketing, robocalls and tele-criminal calls continues.
It’s now time that we should all Vote YES to get our phone companies to stop the unwanted robocalls to our home and cell phones.
This year the FCC told all phone companies they face no legal barriers to offering consumers the use of technologies that block robocalls to any phone. The FCC then encouraged the companies to offer this resource ASAP and to make it free for their customers if possible.
Why, then, have the phone companies taken no action? It appears they’re not as motivated to implement solutions to unwanted robocalls as consumers are to having solutions.
Over the last couple of years, consumer advocacy groups have continued to provide consumers ongoing information and support on the dangers of robocalls and tele-criminals and have done a great job in collecting and presenting almost one million electronic petitions from consumers pleading for action against robocalls to the phone companies.
Unfortunately, these petitions have fallen on mostly deaf ears. Often, the explanation given by phone companies is no viable solutions exist. This excuse seems to keep them on the sidelines and remove the immediate pressure to implement anything. This results in consumers continuing to pay the price with annoyance and financial and privacy dangers from ever increasing robocalls and tele-criminal activity.
TeleZapper2020 Basic is a perfect example of a solution that is now available to all phone service providers for free provided they make it available to their customers for free. The patent pending software defeats almost all robocalls by effectively jamming the robocalls computers while calling a user. This is achieved without interfering with any live calls from friends and family, etc.
Making phone companies take positive action to protect their customers against robocalls will take more than e-mails or tweets. It will take a concerted effort from all of us, working to achieve the goal of defeating robocalls once and for all.
To accomplish this, exercise your right to Vote Yes today with your phone company to stop robocalls. The best way to make sure your vote influences your phone company is simply to CALL THEM. Every call they receive from you, cost them time and money talking to you. Calls from customers motivate them into action.

Have you noticed yourself being cautious these days about answering your phone from an unknown caller? Well your instincts are correct; you definitely should be. For many, just saying “Hello” to an unwanted robocall is the first step in a unpleasant and potentially costly experience.
Hundreds of millions of unwanted robocalls (an automated telephone call that delivers a recorded message, typically on behalf of a political party or telemarketing company) are made every day to Americans’ phones. In fact, the average family is predicted to receive over 1,000 unwanted robocalls in the next 12 months. These calls are highly annoying, and because up to 80% of these calls are made illegally from tele-criminals, they can also be dangerous.
So you may be thinking – how do I prevent this and keep my phone safe? Check out these 8 steps to help prevent robocalls and tele-criminals from reaching your phone.
Ultimately, it is up to YOU to protect your own privacy, security and peace of mind. Fortunately, TeleZapper2020 is here to help.
At the end of October, 2016, there were 226,174,564 numbers on the Federal Government’s National Do Not Call List. That’s about two phone numbers per 124 million households in the USA. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has certainly done a great job getting people to put their phone numbers on this list, but what does it mean?
Based on these figures, you could easily conclude a high percentage of people are having issues with unwanted calls and consequently, should be protected from receiving them. So why is it that so many unwanted calls are still being received on everyone’s phones, including those numbers registered on the National Do Not Call List?
There are a few reasons, but the simplest one is that a true National “Do Not Call” List has never existed.
It was inaccurately named from the start. The National Do Not Call list was designed and implemented as a Do Not Solicit list. The list was meant to be used as a tool primarily to prevent legitimate telemarketing companies from calling non-customers that were on this list for the purpose of selling them a product or service.
However, most consumers were not properly educated about what this list was and were understandably confused. They assumed that “Do Not Call” meant Do Not Call me if I am on this list. Consequently, they were more annoyed than ever when unwanted calls continued to the very numbers placed on the National Do Not Call list.
Additionally, there are numerous exemptions to the National Do Not Call List. These include political calls, nonprofit fundraisers, anyone not selling a product or service, pollsters and companies where there has been a prior business relationship.
To further add to the confusion, subsequent laws surrounding the use of the list and who could call which numbers, when and how, became about as complicated as the tax code.
Legitimate companies experienced great difficulty and expense trying to understand all the changing laws in an effort to be legally compliant. At the same time, the tele-criminals disregarded the laws and the National Do Not Call List altogether.
Consumers have justifiably become frustrated, angry and confused because they simply don’t know if anyone calling them is legitimate. This has set off a flurry of complaints and costly legal battles by consumers, often over what were legitimate, albeit annoying calls. The government now receives so many millions of complaints each year, they have come to realize that something more needs to be done immediately.
One of their recent recommendations, which I fully support, is for the government and phone providers to find ways to better inform and educate the public about the seriousness and potential dangers of RoboCalls, along with definitive things consumers can do to diminish or defeat all RoboCalls to better protect their privacy.
While the National Do Not Call List does lower the amount of unwanted calls, it does not alleviate all of them.
