Senate backs bill to stem flood of robocalls plaguing cellphones

  • Senate passes bill that Schumer says would kill ‘the plague of robocalls’ targeting New Yorkers

The Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence Act, or TRACED Act, provides regulators more time to track down scammers, increases the penalties against them, and promotes the adoption of call blocking and authentication technology, the Republican Senator said. Penalties can go as high as $10,000 per call.

To hang up on these deceitful robocalls, Schumer will be calling on the House of Representatives to follow the Senate's lead and expediently vote on and pass the TRACED Act.

Markey responded in kind saying, "There are no blue robocalls". There are no red robocalls. "There are only robocalls that drive every family in America insane every single day". "Scammers use these calls to successfully pray on vulnerable populations like elderly Americans who are sometimes less technologically savvy".

"Hoosiers are fed up with the increasing number of robocall scams that are flooding their phones", said Young. If passed it would task the FCC, FTC, the departments of Justice, Commerce, State, Homeland Security, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and other agencies with providing feedback to Congress on deterrence and prosecutorial measures that can be taken at the state and federal levels.
