Have you noticed lately that your cell phone isn’t waking you up with nearly as many scam calls as usual? Y’know who you can thank?
Yeah, you read it in the headline, so you know exactly “who” to thank: coronavirus.
You probably think of those calls as coming from the bedroom of some computer hacker in North Korea, right? It turns out that most of them come from call centers.
Sure, we’d rather deal with a few more obnoxious phone calls rather than a global pandemic, but you take your wins where you can get them, so we’ll happily take less annoying phone calls telling us that the IRS is about to sue us or (personal beef here) trying to sell us extended car warranties. (Do you get those too?)
