Florida Joins National Task Force - You Can Now Block Robocalls - Here's How
Attorney General Ashley Moody is announcing a new Anti-Robocall Litigation Task Force that will investigate scammers operating outside of the United States.
Florida serves on the executive committee of the task force that consists of 50 attorneys general focusing on telecommunications companies that are responsible for bringing the majority of foreign robocalls into the United States.
The new task force has one goal: to cut down on illegal robocalls.
The registry works for all 50 states and is operated by the Federal Trade Commission.
For Floridians, there’s a second option available through the Florida Do Not Call consumer resource, operated by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
While the federal option is open to all U.S. residents, the state-run version is also there for residents to use. Registering with the FDACS Do Not Call list is free and indefinite, meaning you pay nothing and keep your number in the database without a time limit to prevent unsolicited calls.
