Robocalls are unsolicited phone calls with prerecorded messages. These calls have increased in recent years because technology has made it cheap and easy for robocallers to make calls from anywhere in the world while hiding their identities by displaying fake Caller ID information.
These unwanted calls fall into two large categories; robocalls and telemarketing calls. Robocalls are automated telephone calls that deliver a recorded message, and are not directed by a live caller on the other line. Telemarketing Calls are live direct marketing calls in which a salesperson solicits prospective customers to buy products or services.
