    The biggest problem is the ability to spoof phone numbers. If they would fully implement phone number verification one would have more confidence that the number in the Caller ID was from a trusted source. If they can't stop spoof phone numbers they could at least give someone the ability to block all numbers not verified. The new rule only addresses invalid phone numbers not valid numbers being spoofed.

    Just like with scam/spam/spoof emails, this is too little too late, cause while the feds were working on phase 1 of this project, the scammers were already working on ways to defeat, or at least sidestep, whatever they put in place....

    The "Do Not Call" registration worked great the first year it was in effect. After the spammers realized the government wasn't enforcing it the they simply ignored it.
