(WJW) — It’s easy to not pick up a ringing phone if the caller ID says it’s an unknown number, but when numbers are real, curiosity sometimes gets the better of us.
BeenVerified, a software company that helps users track public information, looked at over 150,000 fishy numbers reported over the last two years to put the list together.
The group says the most common scam topics continue to be bank account mix-ups, undelivered packages and sweepstakes. Take a look at the list of numbers to avoid, and block if at all possible, below:
