What's causing these annoying robocalls to happen so frequently?

When I first got my smart phone back in 2016, for a full year, I didn't get any but for whatever reason, these annoying calls seem to be get getting more and more frequent. It started out as just one or two calls week, but now I'm getting two or more calls a day. I have Verizon.

    Are you answering them. If you are then you’re telling the callers that it’s an active number so they’ll sell the numbers to other robo callers.

    If you don’t answer it then they’ll know that you’re screening them so they’ll call less.

    Don’t answer any calls where you don’t recognize the number. If it’s important then they’ll leave a message.

    There are a lot of different robo-callers.

    They all want your attention and your money.

    Sometimes the calls you make can affect the calls you get.
