Nearly half of cell US phonecalls will be scams by 2019

Source: admin Release Time: 08:51:36 2018-10-09

By next year, nearly half of the mobile phone calls we get will be scams, according to a new report from First Orion, The Arkansas-based. The percentage of scam calls in US mobile traffic increased from 3.7 percent last year to 29.2 percent this year, and it's predicted to rise to 45 percent in 2019, First Orion said in a press release Wednesday.

"Year after year, the scam call epidemic bombards consumers at record-breaking levels, surpassing the previous year and scammers increasingly invade our privacy at new extremes," First Orion CEO Charles Morgan said in the press release.

The most popular method scammers use to try to get people to pick up the phone is: neighborhood spoofing, fraudsters pretending to be a representative from a bank, a debt collector or cable company.
