A shocking number of phone calls are just spam
A shocking number of phone calls are just spam that cost both businesses and consumers time and money, new research has claimed.
A report from spam call blocker company, Hiya analyzing more than 243 billion phone calls that were taken in 2022 by thousands of consumers and companies, found that of that number, 10% were either spam or fraud.
In the US alone, spam makes up more than a third (35%) of all calls, while fraud took up just .9%. The UK fared somewhat better in terms of spam calls (28%) but fraud was much more pronounced (13%). France suffered the most spam calls at 43%.
