Everyone hates spam. (The calls, not the food.) They are annoying, pointless, and never ending. As hard as we try to ignore them, as many steps as we take to block them, spam calls seemingly never go away.
According to AllAreaCodes.com, spam phone calls have declined in the U.S. since the pandemic began. In fact, the number of complaints has steadily decreased every week. March 8 saw a 15% decline, March 22 a 23% decline, and the most recent figures week of April 5 jumped to a 58% decline.
The website's recent study analyzed one million consumer complaints to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) since the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a global pandemic on March 8. While some states, such as Iowa or Maine, saw a change in reduction of spam calls less than 50%, several states, including California and Connecticut, saw a change in well over 50%, with Missouri topping the list at 70%.
