Protect Yourself From Mobile Phone Scams With Getcontact (250 million people already do)

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.

Stop phone fraud and spam calls with Getcontact

The best solution to protect yourself from spam calls and mobile scammers is to identify and block those types of numbers. Getcontact is a call identification and spam protection app, developed especially to serve this purpose. With more than 250 million users in 69 different countries, Getcontact has blocked 535 million spam calls in the whole world in 2021.

How does Getcontact work?

Getcontact filters out unwanted calls and allows you to communicate only with the people you wish to. Not only can you block unwanted calls, but you can also report them to help protect others in the Getcontact community. By enabling ‘Spam Protection’, it’s easy to automatically protect yourself from suspicious calls that have been reported as such by other Getcontact users.

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. The app itself makes your life much easier, as it allows you to learn more about where unknown numbers are coming from, just by doing a quick search within the Getcontact directory.

For example, if you want to hire a babysitter, rent a car, choose a tour operator for your overseas travel, select an estate agent or even explore an online relationship, you can use Getcontact to find out some background information first.
