Website Allows Consumers To Block Automated Phone Calls


You can say goodbye to annoying robocalls.

"Nomorobo" is a new website that lets you block automated phone calls. It's the creation of Aaron Foss, a software programmer from Long Island - he came up with the idea as part of a contest from the Federal Trade Commission to find the best way to block the calls. 
All incoming calls go through the free service, and annoying robocalls get blocked before they ring your phone. Foss claims it doesn't block legal robocalls, like school closings or weather advisories.

Right now the service is only available for Internet phone lines, but he hopes to roll it out to regular landline users soon.
