Phone scams come in all shapes and sizes, from the IRS scam to Medicare cons to “free” travel to credit card scams and countless others. These phone scams are run by fraudsters who are often armed with robocalling technology enabling them to target vast numbers of people. Phone scam make tens of thousands of calls a minute with the sole purpose of cheating people and separating them from their money.
Every year, T-Mobile claims three out of four people in the US get at least one scam call—and fraudsters cheat consumers out of more than half a billion dollars per year!

No hoops to jump through, no app to download. Like most T-Mobile technologies, it just works.” said Neville Ray, Chief Technology Officer for T-Mobile.
