    Something I can finally agree with coming from FCC, the end to robocalls and caller spoofs.
    The FCC chairman has demanded the adoption of a robust call authentication system to prevent caller ID spoofing, telling American carriers to implement the technology no later than 2019.

    What is getting done? Something about blocked calls / robo calls? My blocked call list and scammer contact > straight to voicemail list are both getting very long.

    I do keep the number for "Sara from card services..." unblocked. She is nice.
