Seem like you’re getting more spam calls than ever?
The 2021 Global Spam Report released Friday from Truecaller finds Americans get approximately 1.4 billion calls a month. That’s everyone in the country, not just you, but boy it sure feels like we are getting bombarded with that many!
Higher volumes of calls were reported in October, indicating an every growing sophistication by scamming spammers.
True caller identified 184.5 billion calls globally and 586 billion text messages on a planet with 7.9 billion people total.
If there is any saving grace it is that the United States has dropped from #2 in the world in 2020 to 20th in 2021.
