    The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday announced it has told [emphasis added] carriers to stop delivering auto warranty robocalls, citing it as a top complaint from consumers.

    The FCC said it has authorized all U.S.-based voice service providers to stop carrying traffic from . . .


    Seems like puny talk that is years late but, I hope it works.

    (Yes I read the rest including cease-and-desist garble)

    Actually, it seems the major carriers were supposed to implement some changes to reduce robocalls - not just the auto warranty calls - in 2020. Of course, the problem with that is if they do that, then folks are less likely to pay them for the service that stops spam on their phones.

    It's all in HOW you answer them! The Wife yells WHAT I answer FBI Communications FRAUD division. Both get an immediate hang up.
    Sometimes when i get an actual person I ask "does your MOMMA know you do this, why don't you get an Honest job .. like prostitute where you actually provide a service, instead of just grifting.

    A customer used to get weekly live calls on the same day about the same time. Problems with his Windows computer.
    I was there one day when he received a call. We (mostly me) strung him along for 30 minutes; switch from having Windows to Mac, then back to Windows. Then back to Mac. Then told him there weren't any problems, and we knew it was a scam. He got mad at us for wasting his time. :roflsmile:

    My favorite robo calls are the Chinese ones that use my phones area code. Huh who called me and I’ll listen to voicemail.

    I do not see them selling EV extended warranties. The replacement battery is more than what most EV's are worth!
