That’s nuts. They are getting worse too. I worry about my parents.
Phone scams are really a pain. I block the number they are calling from, then they call from a different number.
You mean I’m NOT the legal heir to a Nigerian Princess’s fortune??
I found that if you don’t answer their call, they will call much less after. If you answer their call, open the line, they will call more often after, many times a day.
The only problem with that is occasionally my phone flags a call as a scam, but it’s a legitimate call, and they leave a voicemail.
In my city here in Canada, my phone double rings if it is a long distance call.
When this occurs, I just don’t pick up knowing it is sales or a scam. Plus if it’s important, a message will be left for me.
For me they call from a number that has the same area code as my number. I only answer calls that are in my contacts, I reject all others as I can listen to their voicemail.
I do the same @Aziz
The last phone scam attempt, I don’t know why I picked up, I think I was sort of hoping it was a job opportunity from a weird number.
They asked me if I was Diana…
I was like no.
I screen all calls, been doing this since I was a kid, simple solution just don’t answer unless it’s a saved contact, if it’s important they will leave a message.
Note to self: Start a phone scam business and become a billionaire! j/k
One time I saw an ad in the paper - Work for $15.00 an hour, and it gave a phone number and said nothing else. I called the number and it went through some offshore country, and they charged me $38.00 for the call.
“Fraudsters are very good at what they do”
Not in my experience. Most of the time they call in very broken English. And it is 90% of the time very easy to see through their scams. Although, I’m sure that there are exceptions.
Omg unbelievable right, this people have no souls, seriously unbelievable, praying on victim’s hard earn money, they should go to jail forever.
