Here's to the End of the Year As We Know It! | 2016 Robocall Radar

Not quite in the words of REM's "It's the end of the world," but it's definitely coming close to the "end of the year as we know it!" With the year coming to a close, out comes our End of the Year 2016 Robocall Radar.

Our end of the year report encapsulates data and trends on unwanted calls in all of 2016. In 2016 alone, more than 10.2 billion robocalls were made to U.S. consumers; of those calls, we saw a 47% growth in unwanted calls and a 130% increase in fraudulent calls.

Take a closer look into our Robocall Radar report by clicking the image below. As a proposed resolution for 2017, let's all remember to protect ourselves by reporting unwanted calls, raising awareness and therefore, decreasing the number of scam victims.
