The next time you get a call and you don’t recognize the number or a name you know does not come up DON’T ANSWER IT! Why you say? That’s kinda rude isn’t it? No, not at all. Today the phone scam is alive and well and getting more and more sophisticated each month. These sum bags are praying on older less tech savvy people that feel bad when they don’t pick up a ringing phone. Resist you must. Fight the urge. If it’s important they will leave a message.
There has been a etiquette shift, your children never pick up the phone but will answer a text within a minute night or day. That’s because they want to control their experience and want to know whom they are communicating with.
Tech Tip – Make it a habit that you update your contacts on your smartphone when you get a new ligitimate number. This way their name will come up the next time they call and you can answer it.
