Robocalls and scams — a phone-based war against us all

“Many years ago, when the phone rang, we eagerly picked it up.  That was then. For good or ill, families want to text, message and chat. And the phone call has turned into a source of harassment and scams. Robocalling is a modern torment, sometimes multiple back-to-back dials from the same source, often spoofing our own cell phone numbers – where answering the phone puts us on a ‘sucker list’ sold to other scammers. Is it Rachel from Cardmember Services or the IRS Phone Scam,  a fake carpet cleaning offer or worse, the disabled veterans scam, or the grandparent ‘this is your grandson’ scam?”

“Oh, by the way, (Michael) Cohen deleted a tweet about Hillary Clinton going to jail. The tweet, from 2015, read, ‘@HillaryClinton when you go to prison for defrauding America and perjury, your room and board will be free!’” Never tweet, folks. (SOURCE: BuzzFeed News)
