Stop those annoying SPAM callers TODAY!

Ok so getting spam, bot calls, telemarketers asking you about getting insurance on your boat when you don’t have one is all very annoying isn’t it! Day after day I get these annoying calls that either hang up on me, or some person with a deep accent trying to get me to buy a warranty on a car that I don’t own anymore, or they are trying to scam me into giving them my credit card information, so I can subscribe to a magazine to get a free stay in a hotel. Or a caller pretending to be the FBI or some government agency saying they have information on you and you may have to attend trial if you don’t settle a debt, that they claim they can’t disclose to you.

People get scammed by these types of calls all the time. Now that we are able to ignore most of our spam emails, we still have to watch out for them calls that try to trick us into giving away our private information.

It becomes even more annoying when you get those calls on your cell phone. These spammers are getting smarter every day, they use fake numbers from your state, so you think it may be important. Sometimes these calls come in as a “Blocked” or “0000000000” or some number like “1105904990” They may leave voice mails on your phone too.

If you can change your number with your carrier do it, but I know for some people it’s a haste to change your number especially if it’s the only number you use and redistributing it to your friends and family can be a pain. Some carriers let you block numbers from even being placed to your number and that can be done on your carrier’s website after you log in.

Another solution is to start blocking numbers on your phone, people with iPhone’s can do this directly from the numbers information screen. Android phones is a little more complex and requires you to manually enter numbers into your phone settings block list.

This all may seem to work for a while but then you still get the same kind of calls from different numbers. These calls are tough to identify, so another solution I have found very effective is by downloading the “Mr. Number” app. Its available for both Android and IOS users.

Mr. Number is the #1 Call Blocking and spam protection app developed by Hiya. It’s a 5-star rated app with a solution to identify and block spam and fraud calls. This app lets you avoid unwanted calls with spam detection and fast reverse phone look up. It is powered by a community dedicated to fighting phone spam.

I’ve been using this app for over a month now, and I have seen the major decline in spam and unwanted calls. You do have to commit to a bit of work, when you set it up. You will have an option to send all spam calls to voice mail. The app will give a warning when a caller calls, and it is identified as spam of fraud. This is because the number was reported in the system. You can even reverse look up a number or a caller who called you to see their caller ID name. This is useful if you get a random caller calling you and you don’t have the number saved. You can copy and paste the number and the Mr. Number app will automatically detect your copy and ask to search the number for you.

You will then be given the option to both report and block the number, this will send all those annoying calls directly to your voice mail, so you never have to talk to them and the number is added to the block list so other users of the app can be alerted if the same number attempts to call them.


Protect yourself from fraud and download the Mr. Number app today, its free ad-less in your app store and share this app with your friends.
