Combating Robocalls 

Robocalls and robotexts have been receiving increased attention recently. At best the constant barrage of automated calls and texts represent a daily annoyance for consumers and at their worst they are a serious fraud threat.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has been working to address the issue through enhanced call blocking rules, beefed-up caller ID authentication, and increased fines. Similarly, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has been engaged in enforcement activities against those violating the “Do Not Call Registry”. Earlier this week 12 telecommunication companies, attorneys general from all 50 US states, and the District of Columbia came to an agreement to help protect consumers against unwanted robocalls. The agreement outlines eight principles which center on prevention and enforcement. More information about the recent agreement can be found in this press release from the Wisconsin Department of Justice.

Via my website I’ll be accepting nominations for the “First Responder of the Year Award”. First responders include police and sheriff officers, fire fighters, and EMS personnel (paramedics, EMTs, volunteer first responders). Nominations can highlight a specific action, a recent professional achievement, or instead can focus on an individual’s years of service to the community. Please note, the nomination period closes Friday, September 6, 2019.
