Despite numerous government initiatives and countless promises from
the telecom sector, our national robocall hell continues. Robocalls
from telemarketers and scammers continue to be the subject the FCC
receives the most complaints about, and recent data from the Robocall
Index indicates that the problem is only getting worse. Consumers are
routinely hammered by mortgage interest rate scams, credit card scams,
student loan scams, business loan scams, and IRS scams. In September,
group data showed that roughly 4.4 billion robocalls were placed to
consumers at a rate of 147 million per day.
