According to telecoms.com, billions of spam calls were made in the UK in 2022. “The research was carried out by Green Smartphones, which describes itself as a sustainability-focused smartphone comparison site, and was designed to ascertain the number of nuisance phone calls (which is a polite way of phrasing it) that people receive in the UK. It estimates that this year there will have been 4.03 billion such calls made.”

Over the past year, In the Republic of Ireland, members of the public reported receiving scam calls from ‘cloned’ numbers belonging to the Department of Social Protection, the Courts Service, the office of the Attorney General, and Gardaí.
