Yep, call blocking will continue to rise as efforts to reduce Robocalls continue to prove ineffective.

Feb. 15 (UPI) -- "Robocalls" will account for almost half of all phone calls Americans will receive this year, federal regulators said while promising to crack down on the annoying practice.

Most major telephone service providers have committed to protocols named the "Shaken/Stir" framework to block telemarketing and other computer-generated calls by the end of this year, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said in a statement Thursday.

"If it appears major carriers won't meet the deadline to get this done this year, the FCC will have to consider regulatory intervention," Pai said.

The FCC issued a 15-page report Thursday that said upgrades in automated phone call prevention technology over the last two years have successfully targeted "unwanted calls."

"No consumer wants to be bombarded by spoofed robocalls. They're a waste of time at best and a scam at worst," Pai said accompanying the report. "As this report makes clear, we're steadfastly focused on addressing this serious problem."

The report said the volume of citizen complaints rose from 172,000 in 2015 to as high as 232,000 in 2018. Since 2010, the FCC enforcement actions resulted in nearly $246 million in forfeitures, the report said.

The Shaken/Stir framework uses "digital certificates, based on common public key cryptography techniques, to ensure the calling number of a telephone call is secure," software provider TransNexus said. "The certificate technology enables the called party to verify that the calling number is accurate and has not been spoofed."

The system works effectively when all providers use the framework, Pai said.

YouMail, a third-party tracking organization, said nearly 48 billion robocalls were made in 2018, an increase of 57 percent.

Check. I really like the "decline" feature on my mobile phone, followed by adding that number into the banned category.

I just deleted a robo call social security crisis scam message. "This is the office of social security, call us back regarding an urgent matter".

Fuck off.

Is there some way to subscribe robo callers numbers to other telemarketers and their robo systems so you would have robo callers calling robo callers.... or would that cause a continuos loop and meltdown all telecommunications?

Had a woman loudly declare her superiority because women can multi task. Told her to "Shut up and fuck off" but she couldn't do either!

I do believe this already happens to an extent, but most current telemarketers have outgoing only systems. The numbers you see incoming is not their real number as they are using a device and program that displays a false number, often local to the number they are calling.
