The nature of spam calls
According to the New York Times, spam calls fall under four basic categories: telemarketing, legal robocalls, illegal robocalls, and scam calls. When talking about scam calls, they note that “when a live person calls and tries to defraud you in some way, that’s a scam call. This category includes everything from the aforementioned car-warranty scam to kidnapping scams. There are so many robocall scam variations that the Federal Communications Commission keeps a glossary of different iterations.” Thus, this type of call is based on fraud and deception. CNET.com asserts that “People have been pestered by spam calls for years now, with robocalls being the No. 1 complaint to the Federal Communications Commission. This year alone, Americans are expected to get over 52 billion robocalls, according to YouMail, a company specializing in blocking them.” With the number of robocalls and spam calls rising, it’s important to both detect and block them.
