Unfortunately, robocalls are a sad reality that plague millions of people on a daily basis. According to YouMail’s Robocall Index, there were nearly 4 billion robocalls placed in April of 2022. Spammers continue to harass people from different states (some more than others) who are trying to go about their daily lives. Having said that, YouMail continues the fight to find spam callers and put them out of business—and you can do the same.

States that are winning against robocalls
Based on YouMail’s Robocall Index data from April of 2022, the top five states that received the fewest per capita robocalls were Alaska, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Vermont and New Mexico. According to fcc.gov, “unwanted calls – including illegal and spoofed robocalls – are the FCC’s top consumer complaint and our top consumer protection priority. These include complaints from consumers whose numbers are being spoofed or whose calls are being mistakenly blocked or labeled as a possible scam call by a robocall blocking app or service.”
Fortunately, YouMail has your back. YouMail blocks spam calls and puts spammers out of business.
Blocking robocalls is YouMail’s #1 priority. There are 11 million YouMailers, including 150k businesses of all sizes. The Washington Post called YouMail the “nation’s best robocall blocking solution.”
States that are losing against robocalls
YouMail’s Robocall Index data shows us that the top five states that received the most per capita robocalls in April of 2022 were Louisiana, South Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia. Sadly, Louisiana received 23.4 per capita robocalls in April, a number that is far too high. FCC.gov notes that “if you get an inquiry from someone who says they represent a company or a government agency, hang up and call the phone number on your account statement, in the phone book, or on the company’s or government agency’s website to verify the authenticity of the request. You will usually get a written statement in the mail before you get a phone call from a legitimate source, particularly if the caller is asking for a payment.” With this quantity of harassing spammers trying to extract information from innocent people on a daily basis, it’s important to take the proper precautions.

One thought on “Which States are winning the fight against robocalls and which states are losing”
Interesting. R.I. is loaded with robos. I’ve asked my carrier if they can block some exchanges & they can’t. I have to keep reporting it to my robo blocker. It works but it’s a pain to keep plugging these holes. I dug in – they’re all from the same carrier who isn’t licensed to operate in R.I. I contacted the RI PUC and the Sec. of State and no response. Guess they don’t care. My number is non-pub that I pay for yet nobody cares. I worked for VZ, I know we had non-pub books that were kept under lock & key but technology has taken away privacy. I’m no longer putting my number on anything. I don’t have a cell and never will. My time is spent blocking these clowns.
