I just NEVER give my phone to anyone but friends, family, and my bank (s) for alerts.

I have had the same carrier and number for 25 years and get almost ZERO spam calls or texts...like one maybe every couple of months.

I sometimes get robo calls for an extended warranty for my car because it's about to expire,,Problem is I don't own a car..I also get dumb calls from a travel agent who says their records show I took a cruise with them..Never did except in the Military..So I just recently changed my number and only the two daughters have it.

On the topic of warranty and insurance, this bit is brilliant!



In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

I've never come across the extended car warranty thing. Just the usual virus/Amazon/accident calls. Maybe it's a US only market. I would avoid any such thing at all cost.

I follow a scam-baiter on YT that regularly baits some of the dodgy warranty call centres.

I never answer any number i don`t recognize on my phone. Get all kinds of robo calls from MN spoofing my number to. I just dismiss the call and add to block list.

Unfortunately my phone is used as a business phone. It doesn't matter what area code shows up on it, I have to answer it. You won't believe how many robo-calls I get a week.

I usually say I have never owned a car and don’t plan to, but willing to know more out of sheer curiosity.

One good thing about the 'rona crisis, these scam & cold calls seemed to have stopped for a while, especially from Indian Call Centres asking for Mr. Rachel Cartwright smile
The robotic 'Amazon' 'Netflix' and 'internet will be cut off' are beginning to resurface though.

You should see my current "block list" on my smartphone. I have at least 100+ phone numbers from spammers/scammers on it.

Bah, that's nothing.

I was called the other day by the Law Enforcement Division of the IRS, as apparently the FBI is after me for illegal activities I committed in Texas. However, the "cops that are coming to your house" could be halted if I called the number provided and settled the matter.

#%&*$#, that Google text-to-speech is a helluva IRS Law Enforcement Division (slash) FBI agent.

Apparently the cops that were on the way to my house got lost or something, because they never showed up.

A few weeks later, my non-compliance triggered the Law Enforcement Division of the Social Security Administration, who also were teaming up with the FBI, this time for illegal activities I had committed in Florida. Though I failed to call the number provided, Google Text-to-Speech Man must have taken pity on me, as the cops once again failed to arrive to arrest me.

I felt like such a desperado!

@ Dart, I know enough not to answer them but I have to at least waste their time at their own expense and my entertainment.

Because everyone and their dog wants to come to Florida. Florida is like the polar opposite to Michigan.

It's not Miami Florida. It's Jacksonville or some East Florida place.

Florida has over 20 million people now so the whole state is crowded.

Yeah, I lived in Jax, FL from 1996 to 2009, lots of growth in that time (especially after hosting the 2005 Superbowl) and *really* growing today!

Looking at St. John's County where I lived...

Year Population:
1900: 9,165
2019(est.): 264,672

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Johns_County,_Florida

++++++++++

Funny compared with the Parish (County) where I live today, which has dropped in population over the past 120 years...

Year Population:
1900: 20,443
2018(est.): 19,305

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Feliciana_Parish,_Louisiana

...because they're not including the horses and cows. smile



The rusty wire that holds the cork that keeps the anger in
Gives way and suddenly it’s day again
The sun is in the east
Even though the day is done
Two suns in the sunset, hmph
Could be the human race is run
