I was just recently talking with friends about how frustrating getting those annoying robocalls is.

When Is Using Robocalls Legal?

Robocalls can be used by debt collectors or if you opt-in to receive calls from your doctor's office or from your kid's school to be informed of upcoming events or notices. Also, political or charitable groups are still allowed to call.

How Can You Get Paid From Robocalls?

The first thing you have to do is register your information on the National Do Not Call Registry. This registry allows people to stop unwanted sales calls from telemarketers to their homes or cell phones. The next thing you want to do is, answer the phone call instead of blocking or ignoring it, what you want to do is, act like you are interested in anything that they are selling. What you are trying to do by keeping them on the phone is get the companies name, website and, address.
