FTC Fines Robocall/SCAM Company over $9,000,000

The FTC just fined and won a judgement against a group of companies who have been generating robocalls and voice SPAM, as part of a scam to defraud consumers. While a lot of the reason was due to the SCAM, it is also an additional indicator that the FTC is serious about dealing with the robocall issue. I would expect to see more fines and judgements, although there is no way it will stop the robocall issue. It might slow down "legitimate" and reachable companies, but not the hackers.
