Unwanted phone calls and text messages continue to surge, no matter what efforts lawmakers and regulators take to curb them. In the first four months of this year, call-blocking service YouMail reports, more than 12 billion robocalls were made to American homes. That’s an increase from last year. Live calls from telemarketers have also continued to increase. Why? Sadly they work, generating income of almost $10 billion a year. You can try not picking up. But the calls that reach your voicemail greeting could flag that yours is a working number-and ripe for future calls. One way to defend against these calls is answer with silence. When you say nothing the call usually disconnects within seconds, with no robo-message callbacks from that phony number. If it is an unsolicited “live” caller, wait for that person to speak to brake the silence. If you don’t recognize the voice, hang up. Next week, we will provide additional defenses that will drop automated and live spam calls by more than 90 percent. Stay tuned.
