Frustrated with robocalls? Let the N.C. attorney general know

Stop Robocalls: NC Attorney General Offers Online Petition

RALEIGH, N.C. (WECT) - Most North Carolinians have a searing hatred for robocalls and starting today, you can share your frustrations about the automated annoyances with the state attorney general’s office.

State Attorney General Josh Stein said in a news release Thursday that his office is now offering an online petition citizens can use to express their displeasure of robocalls.

“When I travel around North Carolina, I regularly hear about people’s problems with unwanted calls,” said Stein in the news release. “Hearing from you will help me fight for people’s privacy and peace of mind. If you are concerned about robocalls, please sign this petition.”

Stein’s office is leading a bipartisan coalition of 40 state attorneys general to stop or reduce annoying and harmful robocalls.

The disruptive calls can lead to scams and fraud, and having a better understanding of citizens’ concerns will help guide his office’s conversations with industry leaders, Stein said.
