Yes, I've had those fake calls from whoever, purporting to be from Amazon. We have a landline in addition to our cell phones. Years and years ago, a service called NoMoRoBo (short for, No More Robo Calls) started up, and we were able to sign up for free on our landline. (Now I think they charge a fee for both landline and cell phones). We still use it. It catches about 90% of all spam calls. What it does is ring once, then goes to another number where the spam caller hears a message stating to ID themselves in some manner. If they can't the call is dropped. 95% of the time when our phone rings now, it stops after one ring. Spam calls still do get through, though, so it's not 100% effective, but close. On the spam calls that do get through, the caller ID identifies the spam calls as "Unknown Caller", and usually with the same first 3 numbers of our area, so we don't answer. I'd say 95% of any LEGIT calls we get come through our cell phones now anyway.@Madetoshop wrote:
Yes, they were soooo obvious they were not from Amazon, lol.
Yes, Nomorobo has been a help to us. But they don't stop the calls that have our neighborhood numbers from getting through. We just don't answer the phone with any "Unknown Name" ID.@cooldude581 wrote:
