Background: Today, a cross section of voice service providers re-affirmed their commitment to stopping illegal and unwanted robocalls from plaguing consumers by joining state attorneys general to highlight anti-robocalling principles that can help government agencies take action against bad actors.
“Illegal robocalls are more than annoying, they are a deliberate attempt by criminals to flood voice networks with unwanted calls that scam, spoof and prey upon vulnerable consumers who are justifiably fed up.
“The member companies of USTelecom, CTIA and NCTA are taking action and aggressively responding to this threat with a variety of tools. We appreciate the efforts of the state attorneys general, the FCC, the FTC and other agencies to further collaboration that will hold the scammers behind these calls responsible for their actions.”
