Could the end of spam be near?
The end of spam calls is near. And good skill! The moment you sit down to dinner or wait for that important business call, it’s probably a smart spammer who has figured out how to be even more intrusive into our lives over time. If you think you are the only one who gets all these calls, think again. In 2020, Americans received nearly 46 billion robocalls – that’s over 2,000 calls per second!

It is certainly difficult for companies to be in the crossfire of all this spam. If you are a legitimate company, how do you get through? Many spammers found a way to make us more likely to answer the phone by apparently dialing the number to the same area code we are in – many times it really isn’t in the same area code. This is a tactic commonly known as cheating a neighbor. Fortunately, phone operators have been working hard to create algorithms to stop all this spam. You’ve probably encountered some of this on your phone when you see “scam likely” or “spam danger” or even as an unknown caller.
While these are major advances in stopping spam, many companies end up being reported as spam in the process. Fortunately, there is a new way to verify your number through Stir / shake, new regulations to stop robocalls.
