Robocalls Have Tripled Since 2010
There are many annoying things about political season, but one stands out above the rest: robocalls. With these automated sales calls, telemarketers are able to call millions of people within a couple hours. And it’s not just politicians using this tactic. Robocalls have tripled over the past two years, and the amount of complaints that the government has received regarding telemarketers has more than doubled. All this has occurred despite the government’s Do Not Call list, which was created specifically to stop this kind of thing.
