Robocall Fake Out
For Cell Phones it is simple. Just screen your calls, don't answer when you don't know who is calling. That's what I and everyone else I know does.
For anyone using a land-line, the phone providers could give an option to just play a busy signal or the disconnected tone for 2 seconds at the beginning of every phone call connect, that may cause most robocalls to automatically hang up. They could probably even set it up so that it only did it with phone numbers not recently or frequency received. That obviously wouldn't work for fake ID generation through VoIP services.
To be honest, I didn't realize this was such a big problem. I guess it is as bad as fax machine ads.
