"Dial *111 To Report" Campaign

The national phone system could be set up to respond to "*111" dialed by the person being attacked by a robocall. The connection would then be transferred to another robot that can either trace the call or run a sting operation by "buying" the product and finding out where the money is to be sent. These physical addresses will then be forwarded to the FBI. Since a robocaller will probably hang up when a these tones are heard, the system should allow users to create their own custom tone or voice command through a web portal or phone system that is unique to them, so if attacked often the robocaller will not know to hang up if the person says the unique word. Voice recognition would probably require a confirmation in some way since voice recognition isn't very good.
