Are you suddenly receiving more unsolicited telephone calls?
I am. Some are from people claiming to represent polling outfits of which I never have heard, others nonprofits asking for money, still more from campaigns and political party headquarters. The calls are up to half a dozen a day, and the number seems to be rising. It's driving me crazy. What are you experiencing?
I"m getting them on my cell phone which doesn't make me happy since our minutes are not unlimited. That should really be illegal.
I'm not sure if I'm getting more calls like these than I had, but any are too many. I do have a caller ID so if I get calls saying they are from a state I don't know anyone in and it doesn't say the caller's name I seldom answer them. Chances are they want to sell me something or want me to do surveys or make donations to some bogus charity. Scam artist are getting smarter.
They're getting bolder, at any rate. I hear that the most flagrant ones are based overseas where State attorneys general can't get to them, and they use false caller IDs to conceal their locations. There ought to be a technical solution for that.
I wrote a hub about this subject after receiving an abundance of calls. One solicitor.called about ten times a day. We purchased new phones, and a new answering machine and then started to use call block to reduce the number of calls. Now, of course, we get calls galore from Washington soliciting money for election campaigns. it is out of control. One young man says he lets all his calls go to voicemail and never answers either his home phone or cell phone. That might be difficult for calls from family or friends.
