It can be frustrating to deal with a bunch of unwanted calls. If you answer them, you might hear a recorded message of someone trying to sell you something. Or it could be a real person hoping to scare you into paying a debt you don't owe. These kinds of unwanted calls are often scams. Taking steps to stop them can help save you time and unnecessary stress — and maybe some money, too.

The FTC has created a trilogy of short videos to help you keep unwanted calls from ever reaching your phone. In these videos, you'll learn about what technologies you can use to block these calls from your cellphone and landline. You'll also find out how to stop getting calls from fake numbers.
