The FCC is finally cracking down on the use of spoofed local numbers to robocall you [telecom]

By Andy Meek

It's likely that many of you reading this have had your cellphone bombarded at some point with spam calls that trick you into answering by spoofing a local number. The purpose being so that you don't see a

1-800 prefix or something similar that would let you know it's not a real person.

Those kinds of spoofed calls have seemed to multiply with no end in sight, basically leaving callers helpless to stop them beyond blocking each number or just never answering your phone when you see numbers you don't recognize. Thankfully, the FCC is finally moving to take action and has proposed a first-of-its-kind fine against one company accused of engaging in this practice.
