  1. Do not rely on caller ID. Names and numbers ar usually spoofed

  2. Don’t forget the Police calls…had one last night from Hasbrouck Hghts.

  3. I got 3 calls last from a number in France and then 4 more calls today from Tunisia (4 different numbers).

    The desperation to get me to answer the calls to my cellphone and listen to the blurb is staggering….how do our elected officials stop this nonsense…?
