I wonder how much damage the nuisance/criminal abuse of the telephone system causes. I get them frequently. I've seen small businesses that have their time wasted and can't afford to hire someone to vet calls.
And worse, the financial and emotional damage they do to their victims.
I live in an area that has many senior citizens, the prime prey of these vultures, the robocalls and the scam calls. It's terrorism by nuisance.

Is there any fear that legitimate calls might get blocked off, too?

They say they're able to distinguish spam from legit calls from physician's offices, insurance etc by maintaining white lists. One guy in reviews said it was blocking calls from the V.A. Others say they don't have that problem. We'll see.
