JACKSON, MI (WILX) -- Have you been a victim of a robocall scam? Jackson Congressman Tim Walberg is trying to crack down on them.

Walberg, along with other representatives, introduced a bill authorizing the Department of Justice to stop "one-ring" scams.

A "one-ring" scam is when you call back a robocall and the scammer charges your cell phone carrier a large hidden fee.

The bill would also let federal agencies work with carriers so they can shut down "one-ring" scams.
