Unknown and unsolicited calls invade your privacy and are inconvenient. The cost of phone scams can range from a few dollars to all of your life’s savings, which is even worse. Avoiding calls from unknown numbers is the best way to keep yourself safe. Simply hang up if you answer but don’t recognize the caller.
