How do I stop someone from repeatedly calling me or sending unwanted text messages?

Unwanted phone calls or repeated text messages come at all hours. They disrupt your work, interrupt your meals or wake you up when you’re asleep. They could also be a scam.
The first step you should act upon is to list your number on the “Do Not Call Registry” which you can do through our website
The law allows political calls, calls from charitable organizations, informational calls, calls about debts you owe, and phone surveys, as well as calls from companies you’ve done business with or gave permission to call. An unwanted sales call or a robocall, a recorded message that’s pitching a product or service, is probably a scam. The unethical businesses originating these calls use autodialers to make thousands of calls a minute and don’t bother to check if the numbers are on the Do Not Call Registry. Report it to the Federal Trade Commission at or 1-888-382-1222. Do not press buttons during the call. If you’re getting repeated calls from the same number, you can ask your service provider to block the number.
Don’t reply to unwanted text messages or click on links. Report it to your provider at 7726 (SPAM) and to the FTC at or 1-888-382-1222.
