Congress approved a bill Thursday that increases the fine for robocall periods up to $ 10,000 US per call. This is called Robocall Telephone Abuse Deterrence and Law Enforcement (TRACED).
Once TRACED is enacted, the Federal Communications Commission could impose fines of up to $ 10,000 per appeal. This would also require that major operators like AT; T, Verizon and T-Mobile are deploying a new technology called STIR / SHAKEN in their networks, which will make it easier for consumers to know if they are receiving a call from a spoofed number. .
Speaking of spoofed numbers, the trick that many robocallers use these days is to make the number from which they call is one in your area. Different each time, which makes it more difficult to trace.
