Lincoln – Today, Attorney General Doug Peterson urged the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to put in place measures that will help stem the tide of illegal foreign-based robocalls trying to scam Americans. Today’s comment letter to the FCC was led by North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, and Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge.

“Automated calls are a major concern for Nebraskans. Fraudulent calls can lead to real financial loss and serious consumer frustration. Our office is committed to using all the tools at its disposal, working closely with all available partners, to combat illegal robocalls and identity theft, ”said Attorney General Doug Peterson.

Attorney General Doug Peterson and a bipartisan group of 51 attorneys general are calling on the FCC to require gateway providers – the companies that allow foreign calls to the United States – to take action to reduce the ease with which robocalls were able to enter the American telephone network. , including the implementation of STIR / SHAKEN, a caller ID authentication technology that helps prevent fraudulent calls. Gateway providers should be required to implement this technology within 30 days of a rule being put in place to eliminate spoofed calls and ensure that international calls from US phone numbers are legitimate. . In December, Attorney General Doug Peterson and a coalition of 51 attorneys general succeeded in persuading the FCC to shorten the deadline for small telephone companies to implement STIR / SHAKEN by one year.

The attorneys general are asking the FCC to require these gateway providers to take additional steps to reduce robocalls, including:

• Respond to requests from law enforcement, state attorneys general, or the FCC to trace calls within 24 hours.

• Call blocking when providers become aware of an illegal or possibly fraudulent caller.

• Block calls from numbers on a do not send list – such as government phone numbers reserved for incoming calls.

• Ensure that foreign telephone companies with which they partner ensure that calls are made from legitimate numbers.

The attorneys general are also encouraging the FCC to require all telephone companies to block calls from a gateway provider if it does not meet these requirements. Illegal robocalls are a plague – in 2020, Americans lost more than $ 520 million to robocall scams.
