Congress recently passed legislation to stop some unwanted robocalls but critical measures must be taken by the FCC.

Congress just passed the Pallone-Thune TRACED Act and telemarketers, scammers, and debt collectors are officially on notice! Now it is critical that the FCC hear from consumers like you who are still being abused by harassing and disruptive robocalls.

Still getting unwanted robocalls? File a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission! 

The final bill, signed into law by the President in December of 2019, includes elements from the bills passed in each chamber on a bipartisan basis: the Stopping Bad Robocalls Act by the House and the Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence (TRACED) Act passed by the Senate. Now, consumer must weigh in and insist the FCC solidify and strengthen keep key parts of the bill and go further to stop unwanted robocalls.

Send a message to the FCC urging them to strengthen consumer protections by:

  • Providing clarification of disputed terms in the Telephone Consumer Protection Act that would prevent callers from continuing to call consumers who have not consented to robocalls, or who have withdrawn their consent for such calls.
  • Mandating that call blocking programs be offered to all consumers.
