The FCC’s getting serious about ending robocalls
Robocalls to cell phones are illegal, so why am I still getting so many unwanted calls?
If you’ve noticed a surge in annoying robocalls on your smartphone, you’re not alone. An estimated 2.5 billion automated calls are being made each month, according to YouMail, which offers a robocall-blocking app. Three quarters of wireless customers feel like the number of unwanted calls has increased over the past year, and the calls cost Americans an estimated $350 million each year, according to Consumers Union.
