If you have a smartphone, you may have become aware of a new friend that keeps trying to call you!

That friend's name.."Scam Likely". It seems cell providers like T-Mobile have new caller ID technology that knows when a call is coming from a possible scam phone number and alerts you.

T-Mobile also allows users to block all calls from callers designated Scammers.

Currently, the "Scam Likely" technology is only available to T-Mobile and MetroPCS users.
