  16. Clarence Caldwell Jr. says:

    I did paid for Linked in service and the spam calls to my cell phone is every day. They start around 0800 am and sometime they don’t stop until 2200 pm. I even got a call 2 months ago around 0130 am. You block one number and they’ll call from another. 50.00 dollars is not even close enough from the head aches I have been going through. And the constant email spam. Sometimes it’s as high as 80+ a day. I wished I could channel all this to the owners of the Linked in site. The site was great until this started happening. From 3rd world countries to spam in the US. I even listed my number on the do not call list. What good was that. Now the calls are double.
