Now that we don't answer the phone they're texting the messages now. *Rolls eyes* I had to put 2 in call rejection within 30 min of each other.Americans received 4.6 billion robocalls in February up 15% from January according to YouMail, a robocall prevention service.
Here's something weird: we were out of state for a week. Instead of the daily or twice-daily or sometimes thrice-daily robocall on my cellphone "your auto warranty has expired", I didn't get a single call. Not ONE! Now that we're back, I'm getting them again.
Could they tell I was out of town? If so, that's scary.....
Those "local numbers" are probably calls coming from Nigeria.We've pretty much quit answering the phone, unless its a number we recognize. Seldom do any of these caller leave a message....however, in the past couple of days we've had a dozen calls leaving a message that our Amazon account has a fraudulent charge of over $700 from a person in Dayton, Ohio....and the caller ID shows a local phone number. We don't have an Amazon account, and probably never will. Even though I block these calls, each new call shows a different local phone number. There must be a lot of gullible people out there who respond to these calls, such that these hackers continue to make gobs of money.
Wanna hear something funny?Now that we don't answer the phone they're texting the messages now. *Rolls eyes* I had to put 2 in call rejection within 30 min of each other.
Plus they know people are getting their income tax returns and stimulus checks.
