1. Add your wireless and/or landline numbers to the National Do Not Call Registry, which will then prohibit telemarketers from calling them. For texts, forward SPAM messages to 7726 (or SPAM). This free service reports the SPAM number to your wireless provider and flags it.
2. If you don’t know a number, even if it says it’s from a local area, don’t answer it. If you do, hang up the phone right away. Failing that, if the caller – or a recording – asks you to hit a button to stop getting calls, just hang up. This trick is used to identify potential targets.
5. Enlist the help of the Jolly Roger Telephone Company at a cost of $11.88 per year. Essentially, the company offers a bot that uses algorithms to waste as much of a telemarketer’s time as possible by making them caller think they are talking with an actual human.
If that’s too hardcore, you can always file a complaint online with the FTC or FCC after getting an unwanted call or text. Has to be a robocall or automated text though — not just your ex calling to “check in.”
