Robocalls: FTC shuts down 4 groups responsible for 'billions' of calls


March 27, 2019

As the war against robocalls wages on, the Federal Trade Commission claims to have won yet another victory against the illegal spammers. 

In a release this week, the agency touted that it shut down "four separate operations" that were responsible for "bombarding consumers nationwide with billions of unwanted and illegal robocalls."

According to the FTC, the groups responsible pitched a wide array of services from auto warranties and debt-relief services to home security systems, fake charities and services meant to help improve Google search results.
