Report says more than 26 billion robocalls made last year. Gray Hall reports during Action News at 9 a.m. on February 3, 2019.

If you feel like you are getting more and more phone calls from numbers you don't recognize, you are not alone.

A new report says more than 26 billion spam calls were made last year, up 46-percent.

On average, a person received 10 spam calls a month.

Despite the huge increase, fewer people are complaining.

The Do Not Call Registry actually showed a decrease in complaints.

You can still register any phone number you have at donotcall.gov.
