They are all places that originated robocalls to me in the last day or so. They are also places that I have absolutely no contact with. None of these callers left a voice message. What can I do about the calls? Apparently, not much. Here is a link to the Federal Trade Commission, Consumer Information, Robocalls. Here is also a video from the FTC about robocalls.
What do I do about the robocalls? I do not answer my phone unless I can identify who is calling. If you call me and do not leave a message, I will not call you back unless my caller ID shows that you called. It is a bother, but usually, even when I have the sound on my phone turned on, these calls do not seem to ring through. There are a number of YouTube videos on this subject so if you want to know a lot more, you can watch some of them.
