Public needs more info on phone scams

Bravo for printing letters from those victimized by the epidemic of scam phone calls on landlines and cellphones [“Possible solutions to reduce robocalls,” Letters, Aug. 17].

These callers appear to target the very young and senior citizens, who are vulnerable. The scam artists are apparently able to avoid many blocking devices. Some service providers limit the numbers a customer can block.

As a service, Newsday should regularly alert the public to current scams and numbers to ignore.
