Spammers target smartphone users in Nigeria
TRUECALLER has announced that its community has reported two million spam calls in Nigeria, with a total of 120 000 spam and unwanted calls detected every day across the country. Truecaller’s data highlights an issue that is becoming an increasing cause for concern in Nigeria as spammers become more adept at harassing and taking advantage of smartphone users in Nigeria.
