Every Telecom Service Can Now Stop Robocalls

curl 'https://dataapi.youmail.com/api/v2/phone/9991002000?format=json'
Virtually instantaneous response to telco company letting them know if the caller has been identified as a robo/spam, allowing the telco to block the call before the recipient is bothered.
YouMail Responds Instantly with Spam/Robo Flag:
{"statusCode":10000,"recordFound":true,"phoneNumber:"9991002000","spamRisk":{"level":1,"reasonLabel":"SPAM_OTHER","reasonCode":5999,"reasonMessage":"This caller has been determined to be a spammer."},"timestamp":"2016-10-05T00:55:50.526Z"}
A simple API call allows anyone to determine if a number is definitely spam, likely spam, or not spam. The results are drawn directly from our intelligent algorithms that combine call patterns and crowdsourced spam data.
Nearly 15 billion robocalls were made in the U.S. during the first half of 2017, according to YouMail, which provides anti-robocall services.
If it seems like you're getting more robocalls than ever, experts say you're right. But the people who are calling are not telemarketers.
For all the fancy technology of smartphones, robocalls remain a nearly unstoppable problem.
Robocalling soars despite 'Do Not Call' registry, as scammers 'couldn't care less' about bothering consumers.
