FCC’s largest fine of $225M
Acting Chairwoman of the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Rosenworcel started anti-robocall agenda and wrote in a tweet:
“Unwanted robocalls are not only a nuisance, but they also pose a serious risk to consumers who can inadvertently share sensitive, personal information in response to bad actors’ malicious schemes.”
She expressed her proud feelings to disclose the first set of actions to resume focus on what the FCC can do to fight against the most pressing issue. Rosenworcel further continued and said: “I believe closer coordination within the agency & between federal & state partners can help in addressing this consumer issue.”
