Got a call, was busy so had to call back.
Guess what? the caller, 1(480)288-8013 is "Unassigned Number".
WTF?

By all means, let's forget some of those terrorists and go for the spam
callers. You need to have your priorities straight.


NSA is spying on everyone anyway so just define spam calling as terrorism

a few drones ought to fix the problem quickly

Wonder if Trump will resume enforcement of the Do Not Call rules?

Obama certainly only enforced laws that would benefit Democrats.

Sure, why not?

The cell-phone system, like the land-line phone system, depends on the
"sending end" to accurately identify the number of the phone which is
placing the call. If the sending end transmits a bogus number, your
cell phone will display a bogus number.

Unfortunately for accountability, it's trivially easy to place a phone
call with a forged originating number. Quite a few voice-over-IP
providers, and I rather suspect a lot of out-of-the-US phone
companies, will allow the caller to set the "caller ID" number
information to values which don't correspond to any number the caller
owns or controls.

A high percentage of "boiler room", or as my wife calls them "sales
slime" unsolicited commercial calls, come via routes of this sort and
carry bogus caller-ID information.

As to calling a cell phone with a spam/scam call - again, why not -
what's to stop them? Such scammers routinely ignore the provisions of
the federal and state Do Not Call laws, as they know these laws are
essentially toothless... and many of them call from outside the US,
making enforcement even more problematic. Hey, they're trying to rip
us off in any number of ways - why would we expect them to honor the
law?

Just google the number.

If they went after the spam callers and fined them, there would be plenty of money to pursue terrorists.
