If your phone rings today, chances are, it’s probably spam. New research suggests you’ll get more than one robocall inthe next 24 hours. If you do decide to pick up, you’ll more than likely be greeted by a familiar computerized voice playing a pre-recorded message. These automated calls, which can end up in your voicemail box, usually contain official-sounding, personal, and even alarming instructions.

You’ve probably noticed you’re getting way more of these spam calls now than at any time in recent years — a trend that will unfortunately continue. A new report from the telecommunications firm First Orion says that by next year, half of the mobile phone calls we get will be spam.
