Quite a few robocalls are getting by that have the first 3 digits after the area code that are the same as my phone number.  Anyone else seeing this with Nomorobo?  This is a troublesome new development.

The spammers are now localizing their junk shit. We've been getting a LOT of what appear to be local same area code calls. Often with the same exchange (the three digits before the final four digits.) They appear to be trading on the idea that the call looks like a neighbor's number, or a local business.

It's infuriating. But it's not exactly new. We've been getting these for months, but increasingly now.

^ Yeah, I'd say the same exchange numbers started a few months ago and is increasing.  Nomorobo has not been able to pick these off.
