Remember the good old days, when an unknown caller would pop up on your phone — and you'd still pick up? Those days are long past, because you, like most people, suffer from robocalls.
Not sure what a robocall is? Quite simply, a robocall is a phone call with a prerecorded message (usually the annoying, telemarketing kind). The number of these calls has spiked because technology has advanced to the point where it's easy for companies to make calls from anywhere in the world and hide their identities — in fact, robocallers display fake Caller ID information, making their victims more inclined to pick up the phone.
