Zoeller: Robocall complaints are down in Indiana


Associated Press

---- — INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller says his office is receiving almost half as many complaints a month about robocalls as it did two years ago, but says there’s more work to be done.

He says each year the largest category of complaints his office receives involve violations of the no-call law and robocall statute. He says two years ago he received about 1,000 robocall complaints a month. That number is down to about 550.

In April, Zoeller and Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster staged a “No-Call Law Enforcement Summit.” The summit helped state and federal agencies identify ways to try to stop unwanted calls and prosecute violators.

Zoeller is reminding Indiana residents that the latest deadline to register for the state’s Do Not Call list is Tuesday.
