The fight against robocalling
Robocalls have become a real problem. It's easy to do, with services out there like Twilio, and other providers, they make it easy to launch calls with your computer. Phone numbers are also cheap. People can buy phone numbers for pennies, especially if they have a lot of usages. This causes the spammers and scammers to come out of the woodwork. The scammers buy phone numbers in all area codes, so they can make themselves look like someone you know. What is the true solution to stopping the world's robocalling problem?
Robocalling is at an all time high, and its here to stay it seems
The number of robocalls that people receive on a daily basis is through the roof. What are carriers doing about it? Now that coronavirus has swept the world, little is being done to fight the robocalling problem. The "Scam Likely" label isn't enough and it does not move fast enough. As I have said before robocallers can just buy more phone numbers once the phone numbers they currently have are listed. Some robocallers only dial with certain numbers every day, spreading out the traffic they receive to these numbers to evade filters.
Using tactics like area code matching, and burning numbers and buying more numbers, does indexing robocall numbers really help? AT&T maintains its own robocalling database, but they don’t share it. Maybe the solution is to have a centralized database. We need to be faster at listing numbers than robocallers can buy more.
