Government Cracking Down on Robocalls
The U.S. Government has announced a nationwide crackdown on illegal robocalls. The Federal Trade Commission began working with the Justice Department along with State and Local authorities to target entities that have collectively placed more than one billion unwanted calls.
Currently, there are nearly 100 cases, and five of them are criminal enforcement actions.
Illegal robocalls have become a major concern for policymakers as Americans are receiving more unwelcome robocalls that often times lead to fraud.
