The FCC is cracking down on robocalls. 

The agency proposed new rules allowing cell phone and landline phone companies to block these calls from fake phone numbers. 

They conducted a test with IRS scam calls. The fake calls were reduced by 90 percent. 

The FCC says implementing this process could take six months to a couple years.
