Protect Yourself From Mobile Phone Scams With Getcontact
Smartphones are an essential personal communication tool that we use every day to connect ourselves to the rest of the world. Unfortunately, mobile scammers are all too keen to take advantage of smartphone usage. In Russia alone, $300 million is stolen annually by scammers from cell phone users’ accounts.
Russia is one of several countries where phone scams are widespread. A common type of scam is phone fraud, where someone calls under the pretence of being from your bank or other company, in a bid to get you to hand over personal financial details. Phone fraud can cause severe financial stress and can affect you emotionally too, as being taken advantage of in this way is frightening as well as frustrating.

Getcontact is powered by its users
Getcontact is built upon its community of users who take an active role in reporting phone numbers deemed to be spam, a scam, excessive telemarketing, or just plain disruptive.
