How to stop nonstop spam calls

For the last two days I am getting calls from numbers that have the same prefix number as mine, and the last 4 digits differ each time. They always leave a recorded message that ends with the words "apple security advisor". I can't be the only one who is getting these, it happens a few times each hour.

I used to have effective spam blocking but this week it has been nuts.

Unfortunately spam calls are something that plague everyone because of how easy it is to have your data sold online without you even knowing. To combat this, we do not sell any user data, and we have our spam blockers which filter out the vast majority of these calls but even with our state of the art prevention tech, some do get through. There are some ways to protect yourself from this one but it varies by each website. A good rule of thumb, any website you put any of your information into, could potentially be selling that information to advertisement companies who can then sell it again to telemarketers.
