SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -

It's pretty annoying. Spammers, texting and calling you at all hours of the day. But some areas have it worse than others.

Messaging security CloudMark has come out with a list of the Top 25 Area Codes targeted by cell phone spammers.

And one Arizona city made the list.

954 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida is number one on the list. Experts say a lot of the spam there is targeted at senior citizens.

Second was 310 of Los Angeles, followed by 214 in Dallas.

As for Arizona, the 480 area code was 18th on the list of cities that receive the most spam on their cell phones.

480 covers parts of Scottsdale, Mesa, and the east valley.
