Scott Baio was one of the first to report twitter users who have been receiving “Robo-Calls” from Hillary and Obama urging all Americans to “Resist Trump”
“I hope @realDonaldTrump know about this” he tweeted.
Reports are popping up on Social media that these robo-calls are becoming more frequent, some even receiving them at work!
If anyone is causing division in America it’s Hillary and Obama.
Several other tweets confirm Robo-calls from Obama.

So I’ve been seeing posts about people receiving robocalls from Obama / Hillary to “resist” Trump. If you haven’t specifically opted in for these calls, it is a FTC telemarketing violation carrying up to a $6,000 fine PER CALL.
If you get a call, record the phone number and stay on the line until you get a real human (if possible). Be polite, otherwise they’ll hang up! Just play along and act nice, then you need to ask them specifically what organization they are with. Pretend you might want to help / donate to persuade them. If they won’t tell you, that is also a FTC violation.
Secondly, ask them how they got your information – your “opt-in” data for when you agreed to be contacted by them. If they can’t produce it, they’re violating yet another telemarketing regulation.
Now the important part. Go to https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/GettingStarted?NextQID=35&Url=%23%26panel1-5#crnt and fill out all relevant fields. RECORD YOUR COMPLAINT NUMBER! Follow up if you don’t get a correspondence within a week and demand they follow up and get a resolution.
If enough people file complaints, the FTC will audit the call center making the calls and research ALL the calls they’ve made, and fine them up to $6,000 per call for which they don’t have legitimate opt-in data for. Given the volume of calls they’re likely making, this would be a MASSIVE fine.
