Those are scam calls.  We all get them.  There's no way to stop them.

Words of advice:

DO NOT ANSWER CALLS FROM UNKNOWN CALLERS

Don't mess with old people.  The older we get, the less "Life in Prison" is a deterrent.

It's almost impossible to stop these robo calls because they are computer generated and spoof their phone numbers each time so you can't filter them out. It affects all carriers, not just AT&T.

you cant sue no one sheesh, robocalls are a big problem that no phone company can completely stop, the do not call list  is a big joke, they make robocalls until the heat comes on then they pack up and move and start again with a new location and new numbers, but most ore outside the US where they dont care about the do not call list or any US laws and they are making these calls from computers

@lizdance40 @sandblaster  a million dollars

@Constructive   Where does the line start for the million dollars?  Asking for a friend.  ;-)

Riiiight.  Next time you get a phone call you tell them you are going to sue them for $1 million.
