Michigan's Crackdown on Robocalls

  • Scammers who see nothing more than dollar signs at the other end of the phone line beware. Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel and Michigan residents have had enough. AG Nessel is leading several efforts to protect Michigan residents from the billion plus robocalls made to them every year.

    Robocall Initiatives

Illegal Robocalls

  • You receive a robocall: 

    • You are on the National Do Not Call registry; 
    • The caller does not provide their full name, who they are calling for, or a phone number that if called will be answered by a live operator; or
    • The number on the Caller ID is fake, misleading or inaccurate.

    Under Michigan law, a robocall is simply a telephone call with a recorded message, in whole or in part.

Legal Robocalls

  • You receive a robocall from a person or business:

    • Whom you have given prior permission to contact you;
    • Whom you are already a customer;
    • Who requests a face-to-face meeting to sell you something;
    • That is requesting money for a charitable organization;
    • That is requesting money for public safety organizations (e.g., police and firefighter union); or
    • That is a political party, politician, or political action committee (PAC).

Don't Fall for Robocall Scams
