Nomorobo Surpasses Ten Millionth Blocked Robocall Milestone

Momentum for the Free Service Fueled by Massive Consumer Frustration With Illegal Robocalls, Telephone Scams

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 28, 2014) - Nomorobo, the #1 most popular service for effectively blocking robocalls and telemarketers from reaching phones, today announced it has reached its next major milestone, surpassing ten million robocalls blocked on its award-winning robocall blocking service.

The exploding growth in successful call blocking is also fueled by consumers' increasing frustration with receiving countless illegal robocalls that disrupt their lives and often puts them at risk of being scammed or having their identity stolen. Many such callers don't care about the FTC's Do Not Call list, either because they're overseas, and thus beyond the FTC's reach, or because it's easy for them, when shut down by authorities, to spring back into action in a new venue.

"It took 4 months to reach the million blocked call milestone and only another 9 months to reach the ten millionth. That's incredible momentum and adoption for our platform," said Aaron Foss, founder, Nomorobo. "Surpassing ten million blocked robocalls is an exceptional achievement, highlighting the ongoing reliance on the Nomorobo platform to effectively protect consumers from these illegal calls."

As the winner of the 2013 FTC Robocall Challenge, Nomorobo has effectively unlocked the secret to eliminating robocalls. Nomorobo's technology is able to stop illegal robocalls in their tracks while not affecting legitimate automated calls, such as doctor's appointment notifications and school cancellations.

Additionally, Nomorobo recently partnered with the National Political Do-Not-Contact Registry, a grass-roots effort aimed at eliminating annoying political calls. Nomorobo and Citizens for Civil Discourse, the non-partisan non-profit organization that runs the National Political Do-Not-Contact Registry, have formally joined forces in time for the 2014 mid-term election season in a proactive effort to take on the most insidious robocallers of them all: politicians. Since announcing the partnership, Nomorobo has identified the following political organizations as the most aggressive political robocallers: https://www.nomorobo.com/pages/political-robocallers.
