Robocaller Stopped

Federal investigators are nibbling away at the robocalling problem, taking out one company at a time. The latest robocaller stopped was actually an enabler for telemarketers. It used “voice broadcasting” and computers to send pre-recorded messages from telemarketers to our homes. But it won’t be doing that anymore thanks to a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

The FTC settlement requires California-based CallFire and its parent SkyyConsulting, Inc.to stop making illegal robocalls. It charges that the company knew, or consciously avoided knowing, that their clients were violating the law. CallFire was also fined $75,000.
