Sudden flood of calls from spoofed phone numbers

Every couple of weeks, for about a day, I will receive multiple calls from a number with the same area code and prefix and a variation on the last four digits. I’m talking like 30 calls a day and then it will stop. Any idea what this could be? Do scammers just try really hard for a day and then move on?

  1. Yes, it is, and whatever the reason may it be, it is always best to report, block and ignore it.

    I’ve gotten a handful of calls following that pattern of Area Code + Prefix with four random digits. I think it’s just because people are more likely to pick up when they do that. I almost did. I assume that’s the game.

    Yes they do. Usually it’s a robo dialer doing it. No answer, the number is returned to the queue to be dialed again. If there aren’t a lot of numbers set to be dialed, then an unanswered number comes up again quickly
