Why Spam Calls Are At An All-Time High [VIDEO]

Robocalls are at an all-time high. On average, Americans received more than 2,000 robocalls every second in October, up 25% from the previous month. With 49 billion robocalls so far this year, all four major U.S. phone carriers now offer some form of blocking or screening service, such as T-Mobile’s well known “Scam Likely” label.

Meanwhile, hundreds of tech start-ups are developing new ways to tackle the problem.
