The Campaign was joined in a press conference in Hartford, CT by Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Ct), FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, and story sharer, Catherine Larsen calling for telecos to provide you with effective tools to block robocalls.

Now that the FCC has made clear that the telcos are out of excuses it is time for them to simply get this done. Blumenthal agreed with us saying, “These Robocalls are no joke. They are seriously dangerous to consumers. They must be stopped. The technology exists to stop them, if only the telephone companies offered it.”

Catherine Larsen, who shared her story with, agrees saying, “It got to the point that last year, we were getting an average of 7 to 9 robocalls per day,” said Larson. “We were to the point when we would never answer the phone anymore.” Sound familiar?

The FCC, Senator Blumenthal and Catherine are just part of the growing avalanche of pressure that the campaign is piling on to the telcos. Stay tuned, next week we will be asking you to join the fight!
