We’re excited to announce our latest innovation benefiting businesses and consumers: The YouMail Robocall Index.
Since 2006, YouMail has been helping manage inbound calls and collecting spam reports across tens of millions of calls daily. We’ve put this mountain of data to work and we’re sharing a monthly report of the country’s most egregious callers and their call volume with our subscribers in the YouMail Robocall Index to help you identify problematic callers that may be harassing you.
Robocalls are only getting worse as organizations violate the FTC rules and the Do Not Call Registry, which was created to protect you from being called against your will. The Robocall Index shows you the cities where the most robocalls originated and which cities were “spammed” the most. With the help of the Robocall Index, you can stop scammers in their tracks and refuse to take their calls.

What are “Robocalls”?
Robocalls are phone calls made by automated systems that use sequential dialing or a phone list to call phone numbers one after the other, and play a recorded message when someone answers. Additionally, robocallers share their lists with other spammers, so you might be receiving multiple robocalls each day. In fact, roughly one in six phone numbers calling the average consumer is a robocall. So unfortunately, the odds are not in your favor – robocalls will continue to keep hassling you.
Even worse, an unwanted phone call doesn’t cover the entire robocall problem. Sometimes robocallers will try to connect you to a live person who will then try to sell something to you, ask
for your money, or trick you into giving them your personal information. Also, be wary of robocallers pretending to be a company or organization that you might have done business with. This is how they trick you into giving them your credit card, social security, and other personal info. Don’t let yourself or your friends and family fall for these types of calls by taking note of the
robocallers listed on the YouMail Robocall Index. Since one robocaller makes tens of thousands of calls a day, and YouMail can see those calls across our subscriber base, we have extensive data to share with you that can pinpoint when a robocaller is trying to harass you.
How damaging are Robocalls?
There are more than 80 million robocalls being made each month in the United States, taking an estimated $8.6 billion from businesses and consumers like you each year. Small businesses in the U.S. waste an estimated 20 million hours per year answering and dealing with robocalls – this translates to $475 million in lost productivity annually.
It’s clear that robocalls are taking away both your time and money and continually hurting businesses you rely on and love. Before the impact becomes too large to manage, take a step with YouMail to start getting rid of the robocall problem. View all of our helpful information on the top 20 spammers in the US and see a breakdown of which cities are targeted by robocalls the most. We are updating the Robocall Index monthly so that you always have a recent report of the most problematic callers. Help the cause! Spread the awareness to your friends, family, online
connections, and coworkers by adding a Robocall Index widget to your own website. Keep a miniature report on your page of the top spammers and you’ll be able to prevent your connections from falling for robocalls as well.
