The country's largest cell phone companies are teaming up to block illegal robocalls and scammers.

AARP Ohio said this move will be especially helpful for the state's senior citizens. 

Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T are among the 12 mobile companies coming up with ways to block these automatic telemarketing calls, provide caller ID labeling tools, and implement ways to verify calls that come from valid sources.

Luke Russell with AARP Ohio said this is especially good news for older Ohioans.
