We still get junk calls Monday through Saturday on our landline, but Sunday and evening have improved a lot lately. Also, the junk almost always seems to be coming from a town, space, space, two letter state abbreviation. Our phone's text to voice technology is so bad that we can't even understand who the heck is supposedly calling, but we rarely even bother getting up to look anymore since so much of it is just annoying crap. "If it's important they'll leave a message"... "Nope,.. guess it wasn't important." That's with Verizon. I can't imagine what cell phone madness others have been fielding lately after reading this:
The Federal Communications Commission is threatening to block calls from voice service providers that have yet to take meaningful action against illegal robocalls.
On Monday, the FCC announced that it was beginning the process to remove providers from the agency’s Robocall Mitigation Database for failing to fully implement STIR/SHAKEN anti-robocall protocols into their networks. If the companies fail to meet these requirements over the next two weeks, compliant providers will be forced to block their calls.

“This is a new era. If a provider doesn’t meet its obligations under the law, it now faces expulsion from America’s phone networks. Fines alone aren’t enough,” FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statement on Monday. “Providers that don’t follow our rules and make it easy to scam consumers will now face swift consequences.”

Glad they're finally doing something.. Nowhere near enough, imo. But at least it's something.

Blowing smoke up dumb Americans asses to get votes in November.
Just like Dimocrats selling off Americas strategic Oil reserves and ammunition stockpiles leaving us vulnerable but lowering gas prices temporarily to get votes. These people ARE Satan in the flesh.

The dimocrats LOVE this crap going on.
Betcha a dollar to a donut the Biden admin is helping foreign spammers and scammers at every turn they can.
Remeber...No matter what Dimocrats SAY they are going to do...they do the EXACT opposite.

The Biden admin will find a way to break every promise made to help Florida after Ian, send the money directly to Dimocrats and Communists, claim they helped and dumbass Americans will believe it.

I'll bet you a dollar most of the money promised to Florida will disappear and end up in Puerto Rico where it can be laundered into Dimocrat hands.

These people make Satan look like the Pope.

Just watch people get hurt, maimed or killed when you can help others. There are plenty who do. But not enough.

It wasn't when they started. But the change took place when technology allowed these foreigners to use software to display a different number than they are calling from called spoofing. It's useless to report a number that's not real in the first place. Secondly, what good does reporting a call from another country do?

Our country can put a vehicle on the planet Mars, but can't stop spoofed calls from other countries. Why don't I believe that?
