Protecting Consumers from Robocalls

USTelecom and our members work in industry forums to develop solutions to stay ahead of the many sophisticated ways criminals manipulate calling services to harass the public. Strong enforcement against illegal robocallers remains critical, and we continue to work closely with the Federal Communications Commission, the Federal Trade Commission and federal and state prosecutors to identify and shut down illegal calling operations.
