CA Robo Calls Crackdown
(Sacramento, CA) — A public advocacy group in California is leveling heavy criticism on the Federal Communications Commission for its enforcement of the 2019 “Trace Act.” The crackdown on Robo Calls was expected to show results by June 30th.The group found Robo Calls are responsible for ten-billion dollars a year in fraud losses. But, CAL PIRG says the FCC appears to be toughening its stance on compliance. A progress update is expected by September 29th. But in California, like other states, there’s not much elected officials or advocacy groups can do, but put pressure on the FCC. State Assemblyman Jesse Gabriel says CAL PIRG discovered Robo Calls are responsible for ten-billion dollars a year in fraud losses and another three-billion in wasted time.
