Fradulent Calls Impersonating American Benefits Group
We have received numerous complaints of calls from someone claiming to be from “American Benefits” or “American Benefits Insurance" in violation of the federal Do-Not-Call list and other laws. We have no connection with these calls and no way to stop the criminals making them. If you are receiving these calls, we are sorry that you are experiencing this illegal harassment. We have reported the activity to the FCC.
What can I do to prevent receiving the American Benefits calls?
There are several things you can do to prevent receiving the false American Benefits calls:
- Register your home or mobile phone number for free with the National Do Not Call Registry. The registration never expires and you can register up to three numbers. https://www.donotcall.gov/
- Sign up for a robocall blocking service with your carrier. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon offer free services that you can sign up for to help reduce unwanted calls.
- Download a robocall blocker app such as Hiya, Nomorobo, or Truecaller to filter the incoming calls.
- Download the AT&T Call Protect app. It will help you detect and block potentially fraudulent calls.
What should I do if I receive an American Benefits telemarketing call?
If you receive a telemarketing call from American Benefits, you may try the following:
- Don’t engage in conversation and make it clear from the start that you don’t wish to be contacted in the future.
- If you have registered with the National Do Not Call Registry, but you continue receiving telemarketing calls after 30 days from the registration date, you can file a complaint.
- Report scam calls to the National Consumers League Fraud Center, the Federal Trade Commission, and/or the Federal Communications Commission.
- Make sure not to disclose any personal information to telemarketers, no matter whether the call seems suspicious or not.
