How do you collect from Robocallers?

Telecommunications watchdogs have fined illegal robocallers millions over the past several years, but it turns out only a few thousand dollars has ever been collected.

According to The Wall Street Journal, “Since 2015, the Federal Communications Commission has ordered violators of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, a law governing telemarketing and robodialing, to pay $208.4 million. That sum includes so-called forfeiture orders in cases involving robocalling, Do Not Call Registry and telephone solicitation violations.”

The reason it’s been so difficult to collect? Turns out it’s as easy as closing down your business or changing its name to hide from the FCC. For overseas organizations, it’s even easier as it’s almost impossible to identify or seize foreign assets.
