CallSource blocks unwanted spam calls to your business
During the first half of 2019, spam calls accounted for between 10% and 12% of all calls. This figure is based on approximately 75,000,000 calls to CallSource customers. If this were not bad enough, in July and August, spam calls spiked to approximately 17% of all traffic!
Anyone who owns a telephone knows all too well how many unwanted calls are targeting the public these days. Most are autodialed, prerecorded “spam.” Although these calls are clearly illegal, laws like The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and programs like the “Do Not Call List” can’t stop them. The FCC can’t stop them. The carriers can – but have little or no incentive to do so.
CallSource blocks spam calls to businesses
For many years, CallSource and a small number of call tracking and telephone performance providers have carried the burden of inventing and maintaining technologies to identify and block telephone spam and telephone hackers.
CallSource alone, via its proprietary system, CallShield, has blocked more than one hundred million (100,000,000) calls that would otherwise have plagued our customers or, in some cases, exposed their telephone systems to hackers attempting to hijack their phones in order to remotely place overseas calls while leaving their victims to pay the bill from their telephone carrier.
Increase in spam calls and FCC cracking down on robocalls
The recent increase in spam calls seems ironic, since the FCC very recently announced that they are cracking down on spammers and the carriers say they are working on solutions to address the problem.
The good news is that there are serious efforts underway to identify “spoofed” calls (calls in which the identified number is falsified) and to verify that callers correctly identify the number or the business from which they are calling. Rest assured, CallSource is also a participant in these efforts.

All CallSource tracking numbers, or numbers that are ported to the CallSource system, are protected with CallShield.
