Anyone else's phone infested with these? I think im averaging 8-10 a day the last few weeks.  At this point I barely even bother answering if its a number I dont know/have stored in my phone.

Yes. They come and go. Last few weeks were pretty good, probably none.

Just block em as they come in. I'm good for 2 or 3 a day. They spoof legit numbers and that makes me want for Pakistan to nuke India.

 

Blocking doesnt really do anything, its just a random number generator that usually uses some town close to wherever your phone is registered.

I dont think scammers care about the do not call list.  Agreed that they do seem to come and go, just been getting hammered with them the last two weeks.

 

The best one yet was "the FBI and IRS have suspended my social security number".

Some of them are repeat numbers. Blocking helps but doesn't eliminate them.

 

Gotcha, I dont think ive ever seen a repeat.  Usually its the same area code and first 3 digits of my phone number followed by 4 random numbers.

Some dot head called me the other week Tom Wilson from the social security administration. Said they were gonna arrest me. He had my name and address. I told him to paint his dot on real big and when he steps one foot on my drive way I was going to blow his brains out all over my street.
