FRECKLES' PICK - WINNER
Atlanta is the most robocalled city in the U.S., study says
Atlanta residents received more than 100 million robocalls just in January alone, according to a recent study by YouMail.
Two of Atlanta’s area codes are in the top 5 for being the most robocalled. 404 is #1 with nearly 50 million calls received and 678 came in fourth.
The best advice for avoiding robocalls is never, ever answer your phone if you don’t recognize the number calling! There is no way to stop getting called because these calls are being placed by criminal elements outside of the U.S. and they don’t care about our laws
One number to definitely avoid is 1-800-955-6600, YouMail said the top robocall comes from this number, which is a credit card debt-collection agency. (WSBTV)
