Robocalls are on the rise, and T-Mobile continues to lead the war against robo-spam – all those unwanted robocalls and scam calls. Today, the Un-carrier announced it has now blocked 3.5 billion scam calls and warned T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile customers about 15 billion ‘Scam Likely’ calls since launching its free network-based Scam ID and Scam Block solutions in March 2017. The Un-carrier is now warning customers about one billion ‘Scam Likely’ calls a month – or 23,000 every minute!
But the problem is only getting worse. U.S. mobile customers received nearly 48 billion robocalls last year – more than 150 calls for every adult. And half of calls this year are projected to be robo-spam, and in the last twelve months, Americans have been scammed out of over $10 billion. Fraudsters are finding more sophisticated ways to trick consumers, spoofing familiar business numbers and using personal information to lure people in to a false sense of security.
