AG Nessel Joins Efforts to Stop Robocallers from Misusing Legitimate Phone Numbers
Wed, 17 Nov 2021 06:03:46 EST


Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel joined a coalition of attorneys general showing support for the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) efforts to reduce illegal robocallers’ access to legitimate phone numbers, which they say results in unending robocalls that scam people out of their hard-earned money.

Officials say robocallers are now successfully evading caller ID authentication by purchasing access to legitimate phone numbers to conceal their identities.

They typically do this by providing false identifying information to, or otherwise shielding their identities from, the companies that have access to legitimate numbers.
