That's crappy. Glad I leave my phone in the bathroom and on silent. Hope you sleep soon.

I was on the verge of falling asleep and I keep my phone with me at all times in case of an emergency.. But 3am is bullshit for scams.

Itsva ploy, if they call really late, yiur more likely to be half asleep and be duped by it.

Can you put your phone on blocking mode at night, and then allow exceptions for certain numbers? I do that for mine. So it silences everyone except my mom, dh, and sister between 10pm-7am.

I'm not even slightly tired now.

I probably could.. But that blocks calls ringing from hospitals and other things if something comes up. I never thought I'd have to worry about a stupid phishing call at 3.

The number means nothing anymore. It could be anywhere in the world and just using that number for call routing purposes.

It has a thing that you can set any number to go through if it calls you X amount of times (like more than once, twice, etc...) although this is getting complicated now. Lol Hopefully you just don't get any more bs phone scams instead.
