Robocalls a growing problem

Newly released numbers from AARP get into the scope of the robocall problem in the United States. Mary Tritsch from A-A-R-P Kansas tells us about the stats.

“We did a survey in April of this year, and found out 48 billion robo calls came into the United States last year.  That's a lot.  We like to answer the phone, I mean, it may be something important like a school closing or weather information or, for example, I got a call from the Shawnee County Sheriff's office the other day about car burglaries," she said.

It may be information you need, but if it is, you can get it via voicemail. If they never talk to you, you can't get scammed.
