40 States Have Now Joined the Effort to Stop Robocalls in the US

New Hampshire is the latest state to join a coalition of attorneys general from 39 other states as they seek to address the urgent issue of robocalls.

The coalition is meeting with major telephone companies to work out solutions for the growing problem of unwanted calls that affects millions of Americans on a daily basis. In fact, First Orion reported recently that half of all calls placed in 2019 will be robocalls.

The main focus of the coalition is to combat neighbor-spoofing, a technique in which scammers use false Caller ID technology to make a recipient believe he is receiving a call from someone within his own area code. This technique has become increasingly widespread over the past few years.

The result is that less and less people are answering their phones, now that not even Caller ID can be trusted completely.

In November, the Federal Communications Commission demanded that phone companies implement call-authentication systems by 2019. This may help consumers determine which calls are dubious and which are real. However, it will not block spam calls.

In addition, a new bill proposed by several US senators may give the Federal Trade Commission more power to crack down on robocalls and punish those who make money from phone scams.

New Bill Might Finally Allow FTC To Crack Down on Robocallers

Finally, some good news when it comes to robocalls: U.S. Senators are finally taking definitive action against spam callers. As the number of unwanted calls increases, consumers are getting more and more concerned for their safety and wellbeing. Some are at the point where they no longer pick up the phone for any numbers they don’t recognize.

The Federal Trade Commission has long had its hands tied when it comes to cracking down on scam call perpetrators. The bill, introduced by Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein of California, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, is called the REAL PEACE Act, or “Robocall Elimination At Last Protecting Every American Consumer’s Ears.”

The bill aims to give the FTC more authority to enforce anti-spam laws, and also to prevent robocallers from posing as legitimate businesses in order to bypass those laws.

In a press release earlier this month, Blumenthal stated, “This bill would close an outdated loophole that enables scammers and spammers to make intrusive and illegal robocalls to millions of unsuspecting American households” and “the REAL PEACE Act will give long neglected enforcement authority to the FTC that allows them to more aggressively crack down on these calls and finally hold bad actors accountable.”

According to the release, the FTC received over 4.5 million robocall complaints last year. Meanwhile, consumers can take action and block spammers by using call-blocking tools such as Call Control. Call Control has now implemented technology to protect users against the latest scams, such as neighborhood spoofing.

FCC’s New Plan to Combat Robocalls Could Allow Censorship of Calls and Texts

Last Tuesday, the FCC announced its plans to cut down on robocalls and unwanted text messages that affect millions of Americans.

Since reports indicate that half of all phone calls in 2019 will be unwanted or spam, the FCC has demanded that phone companies implement a series of measures to protect consumers.

The first measure will create a national database of all phone numbers that have been recently assigned to someone else or disconnected.

This database will be provided to businesses such as banks and pharmacies so that they can avoid calling the wrong customers over and over again.

The second measure, however, is more controversial. It would give phone carriers the right to block spam text messages. On the surface, allowing phone companies to block spam messages sounds like a good thing. However, letting companies block messages according to their criteria is not necessarily positive. It might allow them to legally block some legitimate text messages as well. Under the new measure, text messages would be classified as a “lightly regulated information service”.

Democratic Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel objected to the proposals, which will be voted on this December.

“It’s brought to you by the same agency that gave broadband providers the right to censor your online activity by rolling back net neutrality,” she said. “Now, the agency wants consumers to believe that giving cell phone companies the ability to block your text messages is a good thing. This makes no sense.”

Nevertheless, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai stated that the FCC is only attempting to “help shield consumers from unwanted contacts on their phones, no matter what kind of contact it is.”

If the new plan is passed, consumers could have less control over what types of calls and messages are blocked from their phones.
