I already formed an Anti-Robocalling Task Force.

It's called, don't answer- block # and delete.

However, if someone ever gets assigned one of those ghost auto-dialer numbers, they'll never be able to reach me 😆

"Investigate and sue"...why is this needed? Just enforce the fines on the do not call list and make money instead of spending more. Total waste of time at the taxpayers' expense and doubtful that we will ever see real results in our lifetime.

Good luck, those measures only penalize legitimate businesses.

Politicians, fake charities and other scammers will continue to prosper while ignoring these measures.

I don't think it will help.  If they come from overseas and many of them do, there is nothing that can be done.

And yet, I receive some calls listed as "spam" on my iPhone that are actual client calls.  So I just answer everything. No big deal. If it is spam, I just hang up and block.
