FCC Will Host Robocall/Caller ID Spoofing Workshop

One of the main points of contention for the FTC commissioners was robocalling. Commissioner Rosenworcel explicitly called out the practice in her prepared comments during the FCC’s June hearing on the TCPA:

“I detest robocalls. I’m not alone. Year-in and year-out, Telephone Consumer Protection Act complaints are the largest single category of complaints that consumers lodge with us here at the Commission. We receive thousands of complaints a month about robocalls. Our friends across town at the Federal Trade Commission receive tens of thousands more—at one point receiving nearly 200,000 in a single month.”

As part of its commitment to consumer protection, the FCC’s Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau will host a Robocall and Caller ID Spoofing Workshop on Wednesday, September 16, 2015, at FCC Headquarters, Commission Meeting Room, 445 12th Street SW, Washington, DC.
