Have you been getting a lot of robo-calls like I have? Here are some stats: In December, 2021 alone, there were 3.6 Billion robocalls placed in the US. That's 115 Million per day and 4.8 million every hour. Wow!
Sometimes I answer; sometimes I don't. When I do, or when it's a voicemail, it's usually a woman's voice saying that she is "following back up" with me. What the heck? How can she be following up with me when I've never spoken to her in my life? That bugs the heck out of me! I wish it were a real person so I could ask when we had spoken before.
They want to sell me insurance, debt relief, or a car warranty, stuff like that. If I am ever in the market for one of those services, I will call the company, but I don't want them to call me. Do these types of calls really work on people?
And when the first thing they say is, "Don't hang up," that is exactly what I do! I block and block and block numbers, but since they use spoofing which makes the call look like it's coming from a local number, sometimes I actually answer thinking maybe it's my pharmacy, doctor's office, or something about my mom's care.
In the big scheme of things, with all that is going on in the world, this is a just a minor nuisance, a "First World Problem," and I should count myself blessed. And I do.
