Title: 35 States Tell the FCC to Get Off Its Ass and Do Something About Spoofed Robocalls

A bipartisan coalition of 35 attorneys general signed a formal request today for the Federal Communications Commission to do something about all the damn spoofing robocalls that have driven us all to basically stop answering our phones ever.

Seriously, I just got a spam call as I was writing this.

Last November, the FCC created the 2017 Call Blocking Order, which is supposed to provide phone companies a means of weeding out and blocking robocalls. But a group of concerned attorneys general have observed that the robocall issue is getting worse, despite the order.

In 2017, the Federal Trade Commission received 4.5 million complaints about robocalls. The formal comment released today states that reports reflect there were an estimated 30.5 billion illegal robocalls made to cellphones and landlines last year.

The formal comment shakes its fist at scammers and spammers that have plagued the nation’s phones with robocalls—especially calls from spoof numbers that make it seem like the calls are coming from a nearby area code.

“Unwanted robocalls aren’t just a nuisance—they’re a means for scammers to take advantage of unsuspecting New Yorkers,” New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood said, in the press statement. “New Yorkers have been bombarded with these illegal robocall scams—including the all-too-common spoofed calls that appear to come from a neighbor—and it’s time for federal action.”

The document calls upon the FCC to create new rules that would let telephone service providers block these types of “neighbor spoofing” calls.

Specifically, the coalition is telling the FCC they want to build on the 2017 Call Blocking Order, allowing service providers to “use new technology to detect and block illegal spoofed calls” even if they’re coming from numbers that seem legitimate, according to the New York Attorney General’s press release.

Regardless of how much this effort helps, I’m still going to Google search every new number that calls me instead of answering it.

I've been unable to answer my phone, usually by being on the throne or something.

I see I've just missed a call and try to call it back. I get an error message at the number that just called me. I forget the exact wording.

Yes, it was a robo call. I guess it is like 10 or 100 strangers knocking on my door. Very annoying.

Google by far has been the worst.
