2019 – Almost the half of all mobile calls could be a fraud!
According to a report by First Orion, a further increase in scam calls is expected!
While in 2017 fraudulent calls accounted for 3.7% of the total volume of mobile calls, by 2018 the rate had risen to 29.2%. The alarming forecast for the beginning of 2019 is 44.6%!
The technology – especially neighborhood spoofing – makes the record number of fraud calls possible. That’s why many people want more protection to be free of such calls. According to First Orion, it is developing new technologies to protect citizens. Government agencies are also addressing the problem.
Until then, for the most, the only way to recognize fraud calls is to use their own common sense. Many people use check-caller.net to share their experiences with others and get information about callers themselves.
