Another ($82m this time) fine for illegally spoofed robocalls

The FCC announced late last week that it’s levied a fine against a North Carolina man, Philip Roesel, owner of Best Insurance Contracts. Roesel allegedly made more than 21 million spoofed robocalls in a few months to vulnerable individuals in an effort to sell health insurance.

This is just another example of the FCC cracking down on caller ID spoofing. Soon, many of these illegal, spoofed calls will be stopped as voice service providers implement STIR and SHAKEN.
