FCC bans spoofed text messages and international robocalls [telecom]

It can punish the 'bad actors' behind the scams too.

By Christine Fisher, @cfisherwrites

This week the FCC voted to approve rules that ban spoofing text messages and international robocalls. The new rules close long-standing loopholes in the Truth in Caller ID Act, which banned spoofing domestic calls but made it hard for the FCC to combat malicious text messages and calls coming from overseas. The FCC now has the legal authority to punish the "bad actors" behind these scams.
