68% of Americans now say they “rarely” or “never” answer if it’s a number they don’t know. Another 19% said sometimes . . . and only 7% of us ALWAYS answer the phone, no matter who’s calling.
5% . . . or 1 in 20 people . . . said it’s not a problem for them, and they never get calls from numbers they don’t know. Most were young people, so it’s possible the scammers just haven’t found them yet.
