San Jose, CA, March 03, 2021 --(PR.com
)-- Dingtone, Inc, a leading VoIP provider and cloud-based virtual mobile communication operator, today announced survey results showing that 70 percent of people have received unwanted spam calls, with 60 percent of them saying they’ve received more during the pandemic.
Of the 70 percent of people who received unwanted spam calls, 42 percent of the calls were for commodity promotion, while 26 percent were financial fraud calls. In addition, survey data reveals that 30 percent of these unwanted calls were robocalls.
With spam calls drastically increasing during the COVID-19 pandemic, most people are annoyed by the effects of spam calls but have not found useful solutions yet, as up to 55 percent of respondents chose to do nothing/simply ignored those calls. In fact, more than 40 percent of people blocked these numbers, which brought little effect on later harassing calls from new numbers.
To help people combat these unwanted spam and fraud calls, telecommunication experts from Dingtone have provided the following tips to help people securely stay connected with important people without being impacted by scammers.
• Do not reveal financial and identical information to unidentifiable callers.
• Double-check the URL before clicking.
• Use a second phone number to register websites and apps, such as dating apps, to protect your personal phone number.
“These survey results clearly show that there has been a drastic increase in unwanted spam calls, especially during the pandemic,” Tiger Liu, Vice President of Dingtone, said. “That is why at Dingtone we focus our attention on online security to protect our users from spam and fraud calls so they can stay securely connected with the people they actually want to talk to.”
