Almost Half Of all Cell Phone Calls Will Be #Spam by Next Year, Tech Security Firm Warns — TIME

Nearly half of all cell phone calls made next year will be spam calls, according to a tech firm. First Orion, which provides caller ID and call blocking services, found that mobile scam calls had increased from 3.7% in 2017 to 29.2% in 2018 — and it’s only growing.

Editor’s note: nearly 80% of the calls I now receive on my cell phone are from spammers. More irritating is that spammers are “spoofing” my personal number to appear as the Caller ID on their spamming calls, resulting in people calling me back to complain, thinking I’m the person doing the spamming.
