Phone companies slammed for lousy robocall efforts [telecom]

Federal Communications Chairman (FCC) Ajit Pai wrote to telephone service providers on Monday, slamming them for their lousy efforts on blocking robocalls and saying that a year from now, he expects that we can all get back to actually answering our phones without finding we've been tricked by illegally spoofed caller IDs.

In my opinion, we are in the 21st century and it ought to be very easy for the telecom carriers to do proper validation of all calls. They just don't want to be bothered and have to spend any money or cut into their revenues.

Note that the carriers strongly discourage consumers from using the *57 Call Trace option.

Personally, I receive multiple spoofed calls EVERY DAY. They are obviously frauds promoting scams, such as credit card or electricity choice. They may originate from foreign sources.

If the present Administration is so concerned about "border security", it ought to be looking at electronic border invasion.
