I hate spam. Spam phone calls especially, because... ... well, I hate phones in general. And everybody hates spam.
And it seems that spam calls are dramatically increasing. Especially on my (work) cell phone. In the past, I don't remember hardly any. Now, it is a couple a week. Despite the fact it is my work phone, I simply don't answer calls from unidentified numbers. Leave a message, I'll call back immediately.
The newest trick seems to be calls that come from my area code, and my exchange.. But a different last-4. Over the past 8 weeks, I've received 1/week.That's not counting the ones I've blocked. They have never left a message. Clearly not valid calls.
I mean, it must work with some people. At least enough to justify the fact that it continues (and increases). But GRRRRRRRRRR it makes me mad.
