Attorney General Rokita has been fighting against robocalls.
Rokita and his team have continued a months-long crackdown against illegal robocalls responsible for billions of calls nationally and tens of millions to Hoosiers.
As part of this effort, Attorney General Rokita’s team has collaborated with the Federal Trade Commission and other law enforcement partners nationwide, including attorneys general from all 50 states and the District of Columbia in a national sweep the FTC has dubbed “Operation Stop Scam Calls.”
The national sweep targets telemarketers and the companies that hire them as well as lead generators who deceptively collect and provide consumers’ telephone numbers to robocallers.
These deceptive lead generators falsely represent that consumers have consented to receive calls.
Operation Stop Scam Calls also targets Voice over Internet Protocol service providers who facilitate tens of billions of illegal robocalls every year, which often originate overseas.
