Robocalls have been a recurring problem for almost every American who owns a phone for years. These unwanted phone calls often occur multiple times per day – and if you’re not careful, they could make you the victim of a scam. Provision Living recently surveyed over 4,000 Americans to learn how often Americans receive robocalls as well as the methods they use to avoid them.

Americans on average receive 3.4 robocalls per day with 77% of Americans reporting that they’ve been harassed by the same caller multiple times. 1 in 5 people have received a robocall regarding Covid-19. The most common Covid-19 robocalls are calls claiming to provide Covid-19 treatments (22%), financial relief (18%) and free Covid-19 testing. 15% of Americans have received a robocall scam regarding their stimulus check.
