International Business Times: India and the US Experience Most Spam Calls in the World

Spam communications waste time and money and contribute to users’ disdain for new devices. A new study ranks countries by spam and finds that India, the United States and Brazil receive the highest amount of spam telephone calls. Users in India average more than 22 spam calls per month and those in Brazil and the United States average more than 20. The study was done by Truecaller which markets anti-spam applications. In India, most calls come from those offering services and financial products followed by debt collectors while “Scams are more prevalent in the U.S. than most of the top countries for spam,” reports AJ Dellinger for International Business Times. “More than one-in-five spam calls in the country are scam attempts.” One trick from scam callers is convincing users to say the word “yes” just once and then use the recorded voice to authorize fraudulent transactions. Spam telephone calls, including both sales and attempts to fraud, are on the rise. – YaleGlobal
