Definitely less calls. Only had one today vs 10. I love messing with them to waste their time!

It may make me a horrible person but if they are obviously foreign, I will make up a language with an accent like theirs.  They hang up pretty quickly.

I must be the only one. I got three yesterday and my work phone has gotten about 5 in the last week.

Getting rid of my home phone (not always an option for some people) 10 years ago was the biggest relief.  But I would still get a few calls now and again on my cell.  Though I haven't had any telemarketers call me in many months at least.

I honestly think the worst thing these days for me is the emails from companies.  I always make sure to uncheck "add me to mailing list" but I still get a stupid amount of junk emails.  Especially with coronavirus, I've gotten an email about it from every company I think that's ever had my address.

I forgot how bad people are with emails.  After the first realtor asked for my email during house searches earlier this year, I was reminded.  I now give out the address of an email that I lost the password to and never use any more.  It's a version of my name so it's a legit address.  But for all intents and purposes it's a dead end for email.

With some of those, clicking the unsubscribe link only confirms you email address and you just end up getting more spam.

I'm still getting daily calls from that company that wants me to "extend" the factory warranty on my vehicle. My newest is a 2000 Cherokee that was purchased in (IIRC) April of 2020, so it's 20 years old and has been out of warranty for 15 years. Wednesday they called FOUR times in one day.

I don't even use my phone that much, but I get around one to three scam calls a month. If the caller isn't someone I recognize I just hang up immediately. On the other hand, my e-mail...

Come to think of it, I haven't gotten as many calls these past couple of weeks. Still get them, just not as much.

 

I don't answer my phone unless I know the number, am expecting a call from someone I don't know (rare), or the person leaves a voicemail, in which case it's usually someone I know calling from a different number anyway. The spam callers ruined it for everyone.

I still get the one about the extended car warranty, daily, in the mid morning.  Newest ride is 2001.  I never answer.
