Matt Bigler: SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) -- As the November election draws closer, you may start getting more of those automated political phone calls. Californians are being urged to report the so-called “robo-calls,” which are illegal in the state.
State officials want the groups that pay for those calls to be held accountable, saying anyone who gets one should file an official complaint with their phone company.
”You need to ask the phone company to intervene, and stop the calls from coming. That’s what the Public Utilities Commission recommends,” said Susan Caruthers with the State Public Utilities Commission.
If that doesn’t work you can file a complaint with the P.U.C., or add your name to an online registry of people who don’t want those calls. You can visit Stop Political Calls to put your name on the list.
