New hotline allows NC residents to report robocalls

Posted February 11, 2020 3:08 p.m. EST

Attorney General Josh Stein on Tuesday launched a new initiative that recruits North Carolina residents to help track and report robocalls.

People can report suspected scam and robocalls online at www.ncdoj.gov/norobo or via phone to 1-844-8-NO-ROBO (1-844-866-7626).

“Robocalls are annoying and disruptive at best – but at worst, can result in people losing their life savings,” Stein said. “These scammers are clever and they know that it’s difficult for law enforcement to go after them. If we don’t receive the calls, we don’t have all the information – but you do. That is why I’m asking North Carolinians to report their calls to me. My office will investigate these claims and share them with our federal partners so we can hold bad actors accountable.”
