Truecaller's Eighth Annual "Insights U.S. Spam & Scam Report" Reveals U.S. Hispanics Suffered Financial Loss due to Phone Scams at a Higher Rate than the General Population in 2021

Financial Loss to Hispanics in the U.S. is the Highest Ever Recorded in Eight Years of Researching Scam and Spam Calls by Truecaller

WASHINGTON, May 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Truecaller, the leading global platform for verifying contacts and blocking unwanted communication, announced today the results of its eighth annual Insights U.S. Spam & Scam Report. The research conducted in partnership with The Harris Poll shows that Latinos in the U.S. are seeing financial loss due to spam and scam calls at a disproportionately higher rate than the general population. In the past 12 months, 35% of U.S. Hispanics report having lost money because of phone scams compared to 26% of the general population. 


U.S. Hispanics will more often depend on international phone calls from family members living in foreign countries and therefore are more prone to caller-ID confusion when trying to decipher the legitimacy of incoming, unrecognized phone calls. U.S. Hispanics are 7% less likely to ignore an unknown phone number compared to the general population. Similarly, only 59% of Hispanics say they will delete a text from an unknown phone number compared to 62% of the general population. The research shows Hispanics are more likely to engage with unidentified callers and texters, therefore increasing their chances of interacting with scammers. Hispanics are also 38% less likely to register for protective measures against spam calls compared to the general population. 

Scam calls can be an enormous disrupter to daily life. In 2021, 35% of Hispanics took the inconvenient step of canceling their credit cards after being scammed. Data shows that Hispanics fall victim to and suffer financial impact from phone scams at a higher rate than the general population. Truecaller's insights study showed that in 2021, Hispanics lost money at a rate of 35% higher compared to the general population as well as fell victim to general phone scams at a rate of 39% higher. Despite Hispanics' increased rate of falling victim and suffering financial loss, they received 35% less spam calls than the general population, signaling the disproportionate rate at which Latinos are falling victim. 

"Hispanics living in the U.S. need more protection and insulation from spam calls compared to the general population," says Clayton LiaBraaten, senior strategist advisor for Truecaller. "These scammers have evolved to become very sophisticated social engineers and continue to find innovative ways to target victims. Immigration and IRS scams are topics of choice when targeting U.S. Hispanics because they resonate highly with the population."

Of those Latinos who lost money to phone scams in the past 12 months, Robocallers accounted for 74% of those scams among Hispanics, compared to 61% in the general U.S. population. 

Most common Robocalls for Hispanics include:

  • Vehicle Warranties (45%)
  • Money-owed for tax or legal fines (40%)
  • Offers to switch or bundle mobile/cable/satellite TV (33%)
  • IRS (32%)
  • Lotteries / Sweepstakes (32%)
  • Medicare (31%)
  • Social security number has been suspended (29%)
  • Investing in crypto currencies (17%)
  • Other (10%)
