Vt., NH, NY attorneys general join forces to stop robocalls
MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont, New Hampshire and New York’s attorneys general say they are joining the bipartisan Anti-Robocall Litigation Task Force aimed at cracking down on illegal robocalls.
The goal is to investigate and take legal action against the telecommunications companies responsible for bringing a majority of foreign scam calls into the United States.
New Hampshire Attorney General John Formella says robocalls are a serious problem in the Granite State. He says they’re not only annoying but also unlawful and abusive.
Nationwide it’s estimated that more than 33 million scam calls are made to Americans every day, and nearly $30 billion was stolen last year through these scam calls.
