Truecaller, the caller ID and call-blocking app, has gained popularity worldwide since its initial release back in 2009. The app simply identifies unknown (unsaved number) calls, block spam calls and spam SMS.
In their latest insight report, South Africa recorded the fifth most spam-plagued globally at 15,8 million, with Nigeria recording 10,4 million, Egypt 9,9 million, with Kenya just slotting in at number 20 globally by recording 7,7 million spam calls.
The common categories that tie all these spam calls together are cellular operators, debt collection, bank, political, health, spam, telemarketing, financial service, scam, and insurance.
