Disabled my "silence unknown callers" setting on my phone because I'm expecting a call later today from someone I don't know, and not ten minutes later, spam call.
Its so out of control
@twisterghost I let Google assistant answer the unknown caller. The assistant invites the caller to tell who they are and why calling. Spammers usually hang up but if someone wants to speak with you they will respond. You get a live transcript as this is taking place so if you want to talk to them you can take over the call.
