What is a Spam Call

A spam call is very similar to a spam email, promoting various products and services you never expressed interest in. Spam is a piece of information coming to your phone or inbox you didn’t give consent to.

Spam calls are annoying and they take away your time but they are not necessarily dangerous. The biggest danger is that you will fall victim to the marketing pressure and buy whatever the spam is advertising.

The caller is usually a telemarketer trying to sell a product or a service. Sometimes in a very pushy and an aggressive way.

Stay alert, firmly decline the offer and you should be fine.

What is a Scam Call

A scam call, on the other hand, is designed to steal something from you. Most commonly your money or some personal information, like your social number.

Those are carefully crafted to get the information they need and making sure the receiving end won’t suspect a thing. They can pose as someone else to get your attention, trust, or fear. They, too, can push you to buy something you don’t want.

Scam calls are dangerous and can cost you a lot of money.

What is a Robocall

A robocall is another type of spam call, meaning they are annoying but not as dangerous as scam calls. It is a pre-recorded message that gets sent to thousands of phone numbers with the goal of selling something.

Ignore any call with a robotic voice or prerecorded message.
