There’s a concerning epidemic sweeping the nation known as spam calling. Perhaps you’re familiar with those questionable phone calls that catch you off guard. These particular calls are from total marketing strangers or money and identity stealing mungers-the faces and voices behind the masked deception.
Spam calling is carried out by live agents, hoping to lure you into purchasing their legitimate unsolicited product and/or services.
One type of spam calling is known as Robocalling.
Robocalling is a pre-recorded statement delivered once the receiver picks up the other end of the phone. The robotic voice on the other end of the line sounds like a live person.
After a few minutes, you realize you were bot dialed by a spammer. These calls leave you questioning your privacy and safety. It’s important to know what you’re dealing with and how you can take measures to protect your identity.
Here’s what you should know…
Without prior knowledge or consent, Robocalls are illegal.
However; the epidemic continues to be on the rise because it is difficult to catch these criminals.
Each day nearly 81 million robocalls have plagued landlines as well as cellular phones. This isn’t recent news, robo-dialers have been spamming for decades across the nation, beginning with landlines and now taking over mobile networks like a fluctuation of incurable diseases.
