The Robocall-Blocking Service Helps Carriers to Crack Down on Illegal Calls With Free Real-Time IRS Scam Information
NEW YORK - April 15, 2019 - PRLog -- Tax season often sees a higher-than-usual volume of illegal robocall and call-back scams. Today, Nomorobo, the popular robocall-blocking service that protects consumers from telemarketers, is primed to defeat these IRS tax scams.
The company is offering telephone companies a real-time feed of IRS call-back scammers for free. With this data, the government and interested telecom companies will be able to crack down on dangerous robocall scams throughout the year, particularly during scam-heavy times like tax season and election season.
After recently blocking its one-billionth robocall, it is clear that Nomorobo is fighting scammers harder than ever before. This free IRS scam information feed will be extremely useful for both telecom companies and the government. With this data, these calls can be cut off at the highest levels.
"Robocalls continue to plague all of us for one very basic reason—they work. Scammers only need a few victims in order to be wildly profitable," says Aaron Foss, the founder of Nomorobo. "We're making our real-time feed of IRS call-back scammers available for free until every last scam is eradicated. If the carriers implement solutions where the calls originate, they can drastically reduce the number of robocalls currently reaching consumers."
To reinforce its messaging, Nomorobo will take to the airwaves for a nationwide Satellite Media Tour. Additionally, the company released a full-page editorial ad in the New York Times to spread the word to interested telecom companies.
