MIAMI (AP) - Attorney General Pam Bondi is warning Floridians that robocall scams are on the rise across the state in part because technology allows more of them than ever.

Bondi says 1,000 robocalls per minute can now be easily made. Many of the products or services being offered are fraudulent.

Consumers who don’t want to receive phone solicitations can register their numbers with national and state “do not call” lists. These are located at DoNotCall.gov and FLDNC.com.

Bondi says other tips include never pushing a button on the phone if a suspected robocall is received. Pressing a button confirms the call was connected and may trigger more robocalls.

Consumers receiving robocalls are encouraged to write down the name of the company mentioned in the message and phone number associated with the call.
