Do you still answer the phone when it’s a number you don’t recognize? Or have you caught onto the fact that there’s a 99% chance it’s a scammer?
68% of Americans now say they “rarely” or “never” answer if it’s a number they don’t know. Another 19% said sometimes, and only 7% of us ALWAYS answer the phone, no matter who’s calling.
1 in 20 people said it’s not a problem for them, and they never get calls from numbers they don’t know. Most were young people, so it’s possible the scammers just haven’t found them yet.
