Companies are using auto dialers that can send out thousands of phone calls every minute. If you have a phone, chances are you've gotten one of those annoying robocalls.

The Federal Trade Commission targets and fines companies making illegal robocalls. The agency says it's constantly cracking down and looking for ways to stop the calls. Signing up for the Do Not Call Registry may also help decrease the number of robocalls you receive. You can also file a complaint with the FTC if the calls persist. "Being smart as a consumer, trying to prevent them, being educated and knowledgeable on how to minimize them, is the best thing you can do Anthony says.
