Attorney General Austin Knudsen today called on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to combat the scourge of illegal phone calls pouring into the state and help prevent Montanans from becoming victims of scams. In a comment filed with the FCC, Knudsen and 50 other attorneys general urged the FCC to move up the deadline for all telephone companies to implement anti-robocall ID technology. A subset of small voice service providers is more often responsible for illegal robocalls, with a high and increasing share of these illegal robocalls relative to their subscriber bases. Knudsen said Montanans are at risk of devastating loss because of deceptive scams coming from illegal robocalls.
