    There was already a $10,000 fine (per call) for calling anyone on the no-call registry, but that hasn't stopped the telemarketers. Unless they actually make the phone companies block spoofed phone numbers, they will never be able to stop these callers, because they don't reveal where they are really calling from. They make the calls through the internet using spoofed phone numbers. So this is legislation without teeth.

    ETA - I was wrong about the do not call fines.

    " In addition, the FTC, FCC and various state officials have created a maze of rules and regulations that must be followed in order to avoid the costly federal fines of up to $16,000 ($40,000 beginning 08/01/16) and state fines of up to $25,000 per violation."

    I keep getting random calls from numbers with various Kansas area codes (obviously spoofed). I blocked the first one after it called me 2-3 times and they just keep coming up with more numbers. It's some black preacher yelling about how how the devil is attacking me and "Press one! Press one now!" The first few times, I found it amusing.

    At this point, I don't answer calls from 620 or 785 area codes.

    I got like 6 or 8 phone calls from "Apple, Inc." within a span of a couple hours on Saturday saying there was an issue with one of my devices.

    That's really the only recourse. I don't answer any calls from any number I don't recognize. I let it go to voice mail. most of the spam callers won't leave a voice mail. And if it is someone trying to actually reach me, they will leave a message and I will call them back.

    It's a joke, Tab. I need some humor right now.
