Robocalls. We've all gotten them. Consumers in the U.S. received approximately 2.5 billion robocalls per month last year. It's the number one complaint the Federal Communications Commission hears, and it's their number one enforcement priority right now. Sometimes, the calls are even scary, claiming you'll be arrested or taken to court if you don't respond immediately. But who are these people making robocalls? Why is it an on-the-rise crime? And if regulatory agencies are struggling to find a fix to the problem, who will? This podcast is the first in a series on robocalls for The Privacy Advisor Podcast, in which we look at the problem in the U.S. and abroad and examine what's being done to stop them.
