Good phone news
September 24, 2017
Recently I commented on phone scammers and advertisers who were stealing local phone numbers to insert in their caller ID systems to trick people into answering the phone.
That same problem was happening all over the country but the good news is that a long story in another publication told of a lot of progress being made toward enforcing the no-call registry.
Progress is being made by federal agencies, phone companies, phone manufacturers, app designers, and the computer nerds toward putting a stop to unwanted calls, scams and number thefts.
The details are too long to even summarize here...
