SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The Federal Trade Commission is stepping up its crack down on those annoying and often illegal robocalls and you can help.

The FTC gets more complaints about unwanted robocalls than any other issue, so the agency is releasing a daily list of those complaints including the robocallers' phone numbers.

The FTC says the information will be used to help the industry stop unwanted calls before they reach your phone.

A critical part of the plan is that you go on line and report unwanted robocalls when you receive them.
