Four "robocalling" companies, including an operation that allegedly scammed businesses by pretending to be Google, have shut down and settled lawsuits with the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC announced the news yesterday, claiming that the groups made "billions" of illegal prerecorded calls to phones across the US. Now, they've agreed to pay several million dollars and cease operations. It's a noteworthy step, but it's only one small piece of solving the robocall problem.
