Unsolicted phone calls generated by machines are a major nuisance in our society. The Federal Trade Commission is getting more than 200,000 complaints about them per month. Systems exist that can broadcast millions of robocalls per day for a single vendor. Robocall Watch was set up to provide comprehensive information and explore strategies that can reduce their occurrence.
