A Michigan Congressman put forward a new bill to stop robocalls.
The bill would require telephone companies get new technology to verify callers and make sure they confirm that all calls are from a verified caller.
In 2016, 22 million Americans lost a total of $9.5 billion in robocall scams.
“Michiganders are sick and tired of robocalls and attempts to scam people from their hard earned money,” said Congressman Dan Kildee who cosponsored the bill.
In 2018, nearly 26.3 billion unwanted calls were placed in the country or a 46 percent increase in unwanted calls from 2017.
