    Robocalls are at an all-time high. On average, Americans received more than 2,000 robocalls every second in October, up 25% from the previous month. With 49 billion robocalls so far this year, all four major U.S. phone carriers now offer some form of blocking or screening service, such as T-Mobile's well known "Scam Likely" label. Congress and state officials passed new robocall regulations in recent months and have seen an uptick in successful cases against the scammers. Meanwhile, hundreds of tech start-ups are developing new ways to tackle the problem.

    Why Spam Calls Are At An All-Time High

How can I whitelist a few numbers with the US carriers like Verizon, Sprint, AT&T & T-Mobile? So those numbers can't be flagged as a "Spam likely"! Can anyone share the instructions, how doing it, please?!

They call you and you answer and follow through. Shows how stupid the population is. Why would you receive a call and give out your ssn or any detail about you is beyond idiotic. So yeah, if I was a scammer I’ll continue calling.

Thank you. I used to love it when I got a call about my credit cards, car warranty or student loan debts. I have no credit cards, my car is very old so no warranty and I never had a student loan. This video tells me I should not even tell them to take me off their list - as it is almost certainly an illegal robocall - by talking to them (and telling them nothing they can hurt me with - I thought - except I just proved it was an active number) just gets my number sold to other robocallers. So just refuse the call then block the number.

Just keep saying "Yes" every time they ask a question. After a few minutes, they will figure out you are f**king with them.
