senate Bill S. 151

Should Federal Agencies Coordinate Efforts to Crack Down on Robocall Scams?

Argument in favor

Robocall scams are on the rise, endangering customers. Improving federal agencies’ coordination of efforts to combat these crimes will protect vulnerable customers and ensure that perpetrators of these crimes are found and punished.

Why haven't they already? Oh yeah, that's right, the FCC is owned by special interest groups and lead by an assclown.

Argument opposed

The FCC is already cracking down on robocall scams. There’s no need for this bill, or for an interagency working group that’ll cost numerous agencies’ time and effort to convene.

My state recently enacted a law to make this illegal. Cut those calls down by 90%! Call your state representatives.

First of all I don’t want a government run phone company. The FCC & FTC should be on the backs of every phone company mandating secure phone systems. We pay good money for a landline and cellular phones. It is up to the phone companies to stop ROBO calls. We pay for that service so where is it?

I think that the action should be taken to educate the public. Don’t answer numbers you don’t recognize unless you’re expecting a call, verify online about potential scams if you’re suspicious about a message, etc

    Please crack down on Robocalls. I get at least 4-5 every hour. And if I block a number, it just switches to a new bot caller.

    Nothing we are doing now is working. DoNotCall.gov has become useless, and they more or less have thrown up their hands. I used to file complaints against companies weekly, all to no avail. And huge monetary fines do not work. These scam companies just build the cost into their budgets as the cost of doing business. And it’s not just that they are a nuisance and scam vulnerable people. As a senior citizen, I have fallen rushing to answer a phone thinking it was an important phone call I was waiting for. These companies prey on vulnerable people. Stop them any way you are able, especially criminalizing their tactics.

    This is a necessity! I receive multiple calls everyday. This would be a relief to be rid of these calls.

    My phone is now a source of harassment and abuse by companies and people who have nothing better to do than scam people. I am on federal and state Do No Call Lists. I have Nomorobo on landline and True caller on cell phone, but continue to receive these calls. I also have an unlisted number. I have resorted to not answering the phone, at all, unless I know specifically who is calling.

    Yes, I say prosecute bilking thieves. Right now (in Trumplandia) I might say hell, these crooks in Washington are flat raping John Q Public in front of all the world and they’re not in jail. So it turns out there are people above the law. ?? 👀 We need to fix this, Congress, robocall scams prey on the vulnerable. Thievery and greed needs to carry severe penalty.
