Adding More Punch to Your Report

When you tap "Report Spam," you can be more than just a reporter; you can be an informant. Here's what you can add:

  • Caller Type: Was it a business call or a personal nuisance?
  • Suggested Name: Know a better name for this spammer? Let us know!
  • Comment: Share your experience. Your insights can alert the community.
  • Type of Spam: Define the annoyance—Survey, Robocall, Political, Fraud, or Sales.
  • Block 'em: Not interested in hearing from them again? Block the number right away.

Why Your Extra Details Matter

While it's optional to add comments or suggest a name, these details are like gold dust. They help us understand the nature of the spam call better, refining our spam identification process. Your input is invaluable in this collective fight against spam.
