During the pandemic time, fond myself signup a lot of food delivery services, where pretty much they all asks my phone, email and address. And some online services Now, I got call from people trying to ask me to donate, selling me car insurance, and some "Amazon" calls saying that I made a purchase of 5 iPads, where they need to verify my personal information more than before

Although I don't "think" the companies just sell my information to scammers, I do question what can those companies can do with my personal information?

(I also think people/scammers just become more active than since they got more time now.)

    Note that those calls from "Amazon" are typically not because the scammer has your number. They use equipment that auto-dials numbers at random, and if someone answers they switch the call through to the scam operator. Commented Jul 8, 2023 at 10:57
