Robocalls are getting out of hand, but this could change things

You know all those calls you get at home and cell phones telling you you owe money, a package is missing or you might be about to be arrested? Those are dangerous spam calls and, if the majority of U.S. Attorneys General are right, many of them come through one company: Avid Telecom.

The AP reported on Thursday (May 25, 2023), 51 attorneys general filed a 141-page lawsuit against Avid Telecom. Founded in 2001, Avid Telecom offers termination services that allow businesses to buy toll-free numbers in bulk and automatically forward the calls to the numbers of their choice.
