>If I answer I dont say anything

I usually say hello once or twice before hanging up if no one says anything but lately I've been getting calls from out of state but they never say anything, so I hang up.

I would get pissed but I only get a spam call once a day, I've already block quite a few of them which ends up filling up my mailbox in a week & I don't know it's full until a friend calls me telling me they tried to leave a message but couldn't.

They know you got an active number, so they work it more.

If you don't answer for while, they'll die down a bit

I used to get a call about debt or student loan debt but now it is for a warranty. I never pickup but I read the transcribed voice message they leave.

Car warranty services, people calling and texting “Veronica” to purchase a property I don’t own, and the ones with no answer. My mom updated her resume on LinkedIn and recruiters were calling my number to talk to her.

If I weren’t in this first time homeowner program, I wouldn’t answer any of them. I definitely don’t answer potential spam but the ones that show as legit numbers I make the mistake of picking up.

every so often I have a call from a random number that I’m expecting and I’m sure picking up hasn’t helped.

I’m blocking numbers but they keep em coming

The kids area code is 980..you in the area so maybe thats why that particular area code...?

Im assuming people here are getting the same amount but with 404 or 678?


but I could be 1000% wrong too, lol
