PHONE: SCAM & SPAM warning by "Wisdom of the Crowd"
I am aware of the DoNotCall lists that are available. I am also aware of being able to block phone numbers in various ways with land line phone, cell phone and phone devices.
In email, we can turn on spam and scam filters and report scam and spam emails to various providers.
I would like the same for phone calls.
When I get a Scam or Spam phone call, I would like to be able to report it by entering code after the call or tagging it on my smartphone and also have others report their spam and scam calls.
I would then like to be able to turn on a filter that adds "Possible scam" Possible spam" to the phone number announcement or if confirmed have it just blocked.
1000s of people are being scammed and many are losing money, and identity info, often with high levels of stress as well as individual, businesses and family impacts.
We need to use the "Wisdom of the Crowd" to help us all to be safer.
I would like these calls followed up and stopped, but first of all, I would like to be warned, and allow others to be warned proactively.
These scams and spam are just getting worse and worse. Both mobility and home Phone service providers need to help to stop these attacks on us.
