What is with all the Chinese spam calls these days!!!

It doesn't stop, you can block the numbers from today till tomorrow and they just keep coming!

How is this not gaining wider attention?

Everyone I talk to says it happens to them also, there's obviously something going on and why hasn't it been picked up by the media yet?

So frustrating!!

I just found this:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.att.callprotect

Anyone use it?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

When you use a card that gives 3x for dining at a place called _______Cafe and Restaurant and you get only 1x because it's categorized as grocery.

The new iphones that took away the finger id and instead use face id.

It's dark, it can't see my face and now I have to enter my chase password, something I haven't had to do in years  :-\

I guess the discount rate for groceries is cheaper than restaurants.

Try another angle or maybe try re-doing your face scan. Mine works to read me even in the complete dark.

Get a one plus. Works majority or the time in light or dark, and is much faster. Has a fingerprint sensor too.

What is this all about? Robo calls fishing for numbers that actually get picked up, in order to make other use of? It's getting worse and worse by the day.
