Charge them a fee per call

If the phone companies would charge even 5 cents per call special fee, the robo callers would be priced out of business. A million calls a day would cost $50,000 a day. They could charge everybody's account but allow say 1000 calls a month free from this surcharge.
I have been staying on the line until a "live person" comes on line and I try to keep them on as long as I can without giving any true information. This costs them money every time. If everybody did this they would stop bothering us.

    If you can find them and figure out who to bill the 5 cents to, then its a great idea. The issue is, with VOIP, this becomes very hard. In fact, i believe one person at the Robocall summit said its a manual process which makes it non-scalable (Subpenas, etc etc)..
