FCC planning to crack down on auto warranty robocalls

The FCC is set to begin cracking down on auto warranty robocalls.

The Federal Communications Commission said last week that telecom providers in the United States will now be required to block robocalls that ask people about purchasing an extended warranty on their vehicles.

The order targets a group of 13 individuals and six companies, specifically.

This group has been accused of sending more than eight billion messages advertising extended vehicle warranties over the last four years, most of which were considered illegal under U.S. law and have been the top complaint to the FCC over the last two years.

Telecom companies that continue to allow the illegal calls could face penalties.
