Coronavirus pandemic claims another victim: Robocalls

Have you been missing something amid the lockdowns and stay-at-home orders? No, not human contact. Not even toilet paper. Robocalls. Industry experts say robocalls are down — scam calls as well as nagging from your credit-card company to pay your bill. The coronavirus pandemic has inflicted millions of job losses, and scammers have not been immune. One expert said robocalls from India dropped by half when a pandemic lockdown went into effect. Complaints about unwanted calls are down. But there are still plenty of scams out there, and experts say the robocallers will probably be back in force once shut-down call centers come back online.
