Are you being inundated with inbound phony phone calls? It’s not a new problem, but it’s getting worse. Just last week Verizon started a free service to help filter Robocalls. Hopefully more providers will jump onboard.
Verizon now offers 2 tiers of their Call Filter service: A free service to filter calls and alert you of spam. Then a “paid service for $3 per month, which will also identify unknown callers by name, even if they aren’t saved in your contacts. The paid version also includes a robocall risk meter, a spam number lookup feature, and lets you create a personal robocall list” (PC Magazine)
