America's number one consumer complaint, unsolicited robocalls, will be the topic at the next meeting of the Northwest Suburban Woman's Club.

Representatives from the Citizens Utility Board will be on hand to discuss what Congress is doing to battle these unwanted calls, and what you can do in the meantime. One popular call-blocking app estimates consumers received nearly 53 billion annoying robocalls in 2018. That's a 47 percent increase from 2017.
