As we gear up for another election CPR Call Blocker, a company that sells several products aimed at stopping robocalls, is warning Minnesotans to expect more of these frustrating calls. Chelsea Davies, CPR Call Blocker Business Development Manager, said: “People throughout Minnesota receive these types of annoying calls every day. Some of these robocalls, which are more informative in nature, such as those from political parties or charities, can be extremely irritating but they are perfectly legal. Unfortunately, people in Minnesota can expect to see a significant rise in these types of calls in the coming months."

You'll get more political based robocalls this year and during the next couple of months you could be targeted by scammers pretending to be from the IRS.

CPR offers three simple tips to reduce or hopefully eliminate these pesky calls.

  • Sign up to the National Do Not Call Registry – call 1-888-382-1222 or visit donotcall.gov
  • Don’t consent to being contacted – get your phone number taken off directories and look out for tick boxed on all marketing correspondence to see if ticking or unticking them will prevent your details being passed on to third parties.
  • Consider getting a call blocker.
