TELL THE FCC TO MAKE ALL PHONE COMPANIES FOLLOW THE NEW CALLER ID LAW
We're all tired of annoying and fraudulent robocalls -- but despite a new caller ID law designed to block spoofed robocalls, many carriers are not required to comply with the law until June 2023. The FCC admits that robocalls are still on the rise for some smaller providers. To stop this, companies must follow the new caller ID law now, not two years from now. Send a message to the FCC urging it to require all companies to comply as soon as possible.
