The spread of false information in the United States is on top in 2021, causing US$30 billion in losses through fraudulent calls

Due to the pandemic, the spread of misinformation continues to increase as more and more people are exposed to misinformation beliefs, or in this case, fraud. An opportunity to breed the most insidious lies.

Although Facebook, YouTube, and similar platforms are taking drastic measures to reduce these rumors, we can hardly solve the problem through spam. Nor is it a difficult task, but to deal with fraudulent calls? It does not look possible.

Although everyone is turning to online businesses for profit, many people continue to lose money without even looking for opportunities. Scammers managed to blackmail about 502 dollars per person. The crooks even used the vaccination process and started several fake investigations.

Although people can hardly protect themselves, the government has established some rules to combat spam and fraud, but the important thing is that only they can really attack and stop these drives.

The popular calling service Truecaller released a report stating that these subscribers lost approximately $30 billion. Although reported by Truecaller, we estimate that the actual ratio may be higher. In fact, due to the pandemic, spammers are hosting a grand party.

This wave of crime captured more than 3 million victims over the previous year, and the number of losses increased by 1/3%. Compared with 2021, extortion amounted to US$151. Among them, 59% were stolen due to the pandemic, claiming that they needed to raise funds for Covid-related charities or other things.

The remaining 41% are affected by conventional conspiracies. It is surprising to find that the victims this time were not cat women or old people, but young and middle-aged people, mainly men.

Data Shows How Vulnerable Financial Data Currently Is

It was recently discovered that older people are more likely to be victims of cybercrime than spam calls, and this has been proven in their case. Although 40% of men aged 1834 were also victims last year, women accounted for 31%, mainly between 18 and 34 years old.
