Robocalling Apocalypse

Published No Comments on Robocalling Apocalypse

I am not sure what has happened in the last few weeks, but robocalls have skyrocketed for me. It used to be just 1-2 calls per month. Now it’s 3+ per day.

What happened‽

Side note: After listening to 99% Invisible, I’ve decided to start using the interobang symbol instead of ?! next to each other.

Something clearly changed. I have answered several of them only to hear dead silence on the other end of the line. I suppose, they are just checking to see if I am alive. Some of them have recordings that start speaking WAY too quickly and I have no idea what they are talking about. Some are from well known companies like Hilton and Dell.  This spam to my phone is really annoying. What makes it worse is that I am on the list and have been there since 2013. I thought it was working until a few weeks ago.

Verizon has this thing to block them, but it costs $3 a month. I am giving it a try to see if I like it.

Have noticed a surge in Robocalls lately? Maybe it’s Vladimir Putin just messing with us a bit more.
