Nearly 10,000 Oregonians Complained to the Feds About Robocalls Last Month

That's the most complaints of any month this year—and up 35 percent from June, when Oregonians filed 7,189 complaints.

Of the complaints filed last month, 83 percent were about recorded messages, or robocalls, and the telephone number people complained about most frequently was 408-960-0110.

U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici (D-Ore.) co-sponsored a bill in Congress last month that would direct the FCC to create rules protecting people from unwanted calls and texts. "Oregonians don't like robocalls!" she said in a statement, celebrating the bill's passage in the House. It awaits a vote in the Senate.
