States Suing RoboCall Company


No doubt everyone in the Tri-City area has had to put up with robocalls, usually several times per day. After a while, that can get annoying. But state governments are taking action against it. Attorneys general across the U.S. have joined a lawsuit against a telecommunications company accused of making more than 7-and-a-half billion robocalls to people on the national do not call registry. The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Phoenix against Avid Telecom, its owner, and the company’s vice president. The lawsuit says Avid Telecom used spoofed or invalid caller ID numbers, including more than 8.4 million calls that appeared to be coming from government and law enforcement agencies. Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes said nearly 197 million of the robocalls were made to Arizona phone numbers between December 2018 and January 2023. She says many of these calls are scams designed to scare consumers, often senior citizens, into handing over their money.
