    I'm reminded of the Jamaican scammers.

    No surprises. Certain occupations are well known to be at the bottom of the barrel, and this won't help their image any. I hope the fine will put a serious dent in his pocket. Robocalls are detestable.

    If I could answer the phone for everybody, his health insurance ventures would amount to zero :)

    I have a way to screen out these spoofed calls.
    Set up your cell number for an area code that you have no connection with.
    When you see a call matching your cell's area code you automatically know it's spoofed.
