better call spam tools

Hey AT&T.  Thank you for the call protect app.  It does help somewhat, but I have another idea that I would like for you to share with the developers. Can you please also include in call protect a reverse caller id lookup feature to block spoofed calls?  So, I get a call and it gets through truecall
