How would the Government stop people using the phone to scam people?. People commit murder but the Government cant stop them, so making a phone call may not be top of the Governments list.

Very true ok so why not the phone companies they should get these numbers and block them before they take advantage of the elderly etc

Your on a losing streak. Telephone companies are only interested in making money and they don't care who rings who.
