Robocalls Are Getting Worse

If it seems to you like you’ve been getting more robocalls than ever before, you’re apparently not alone.

According to the FCC, consumers received more than 18-billion robocalls last year, which is a 75% increase from the year prior. And people are certainly getting annoyed, with the FCC receiving over 200,000 complaints about robocalls, which make up about 60% of all complaints received.

And things could be even worse, depending on where you live. A recent Youmail report reveals that Atlanta is the state that gets the most robocalls, with 183-million coming last month alone. Other states inundated with calls include Dallas (97 mil), Miami (93 mil) and New York (88 mil).

  • And these robocalls are more than just annoying, A study found that about 25-million Americans were scammed by robocalls last year, translating to about $9-billion.
