You WILL get solicited because it is a pandemic ! Telemarketers will get you number, some just
cold call random numbers, but you will get even more calls if you give your number out to marketers online through those junk offers.
DO not call list might help a little but TMs find ways to bypass that by calling from foreign countries.
There is never a 100% effective way to get rid of SPAM, mail fraud and telemarketers.
Blocking numbers doesn't work anymore because with VoIP they can forge their CID info !!!!!
ANY time you do a transaction online or offline where your address and/or number is given, you can be sure that the company you are dealing with will sell your info, whether it is trusted company or not, there is money to be made from selling leads
UNFORTUNATELY telemarketing is not illegal You'll have to just make their lives a living hell so the same mothe.........(well you know ) can't keep calling you back after you told them you didn't want to buy their dirty underwear
