Paul,

Verizon has instituted a spam/bot system that has reduced our bot calls to 1 in the last two months...not bad at all.  A

I've got more blocked #'s than contacts in my phone, so for now, I wouldn't know. I do not get as many as I used to thanks to tech that fights back!

No doubt the scammers do...I've been hearing lots of reports about new scams. I'm not yet getting more calls than I have in the past...but I usually get 3 - 5 robocalls, etc. per day. And Verizon's "potential spam" function seems to be catching some callers.

I think so. I got a call from a popular coaching company & I thought why would I answer the phone? Don't need a pep talk or any more info on the virus. I am starting to think more & more that we shouldn't be pushing the whole real estate thing.
