Unwanted calls, text messages among top complaints filed with FCC

Hampden County

Unwanted calls and text messages are some of the top complaints people file with the FCC every year. 

The FCC recently implemented rules that allow service providers to block certain robocalls that could be fraudulent from reaching your phone.

People can join the no call list, but some of these spam phone calls can still make it through. 

“I get calls on my cellphone I don’t recognize and I don’t answer them,” said Victoria Lonis of West Springfield. “Sometimes I get them two times a day, sometimes I get them three times a day, and sometimes I don’t get any at all.”

The FCC says if you are on the do not call list and are still getting unwanted phone calls, it helps to call your phone company and ask them to help block calls from specific unwanted numbers.
