New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and 29 other Attorneys General have called on the FCC to grant telephone providers the ability to block illegal robocalls.

"Not only are unwanted robocalls a nuisance, they are a vehicle for fraudsters to carry-out scams", Schneiderman said Wednesday in a statement.

Glu Mobile, Inc. (GLUU) jumped 0.81 percent in the last trading session
Zacks Investment Research raised shares of Glu Mobile from a "sell" rating to a "hold" rating in a report on Wednesday, March 8th. Its minimum price target estimates has been figured out at $2.24 while the maximum price target forecast is established at $3.75.

"Simply put, legitimate businesses do not need to use any of these methods to contact consumers", the attorneys general testified. Attorney General Stein wrote the FCC in response to proposed rules that would allow providers to block several types of "spoofed" calls, in which a call appears to be coming from one number, but is actually coming from a different number.

Bureau of Consumer Protection officials reported 4,473 Pennsylvania residents complained to the Office of Attorney General about robocalls, even though their numbers were on the "do-not-call" list.

Aru signals Tour ambitions with blistering attack
It is a 45th career yellow jersey for Froome, who first wore it after victory in Ax 3 Domaines en route to his first Tour title back in 2013.

As a result, the government agency is taking steps to protect consumers from potential scammers. Currently, the FCC rules prevent phone companies from proactively blocking certain calls. If the new rules are adopted, providers would be allowed to block calls coming from invalid numbers, unallocated numbers and numbers whose owners have requested to be blocked.

The comments sound the alarm about the growing number of telephone scam complaints across the country and supports the FCC's proposal to remove regulatory roadblocks. That makes it hard for legal remedies against abusing such methods, with scams created to imitate an urgent IRS bill or a legitimate business call.
