TODAY’S TMJ4 decided to take a closer look at where these calls come from, and why they’re so relentless. We’ll look at the science of robocalls, and how callers can set up a computer to dial 10,000 numbers a second.
We will also break down some common myths about robocalls, while looking at the legality of them. Finally, we tackle spoof calling, or making a robocall look like its coming from one of your loved ones.
