India among top 5 nations to receive maximum spam calls, suggests Truecaller

Truecaller app has released the fifth edition of its annual Global Spam Report, which examines how spam and fraud affect everyone.

According to their latest report India has risen from ninth to fourth due to a considerable increase in sales and telemarketing calls. In 2021  all sales-related calls account for the great majority (93.5 per cent) of all inbound spam calls. A single spammer in India made almost 202 million spam calls this year.

Another shocking finding from the survey is that one of the most notorious scams in the country is the ever-popular KYC scam. Fraudsters pose as a bank, wallet, or digital payment provider and request customer KYC paperwork needed by the Reserve Bank of India.
