Ashley Moody Targets Illegal Robocalls and Spoofing

Jordan Kirkland - May 6th, 2019

On Monday, Attorney General Ashley Moody took the fight to illegal robocalls and caller id spoofing, calling on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to take further action against the practice of using technology to disguise a caller's phone number.

The number of these fraudulent calls and the consumer financial losses tied to these scams have increased by nearly 50 percent in recent years.

Moody is one of 42 attorneys general asking the FCC to enforce rules against caller ID spoofing on calls to the United States originating from overseas, while also addressing spoofing in text messages and alternative voice services.
