YouMail Partners Up With Law Enforcement to End Robocalls

Stop spam

Remember when our phones were usable and didn’t get more than 30 annoying robocalls a day?

Visual voicemail provider YouMail certainly does, and has teamed up with law enforcement groups to stop these offensive robocalls, as announced in an official press release. The company, along with the Michigan and North Carolina attorneys general, are taking a multi-pronged approach to this issue.

First, robocalls directed to current YouMail users will be automatically detected and forwarded to law enforcement.

Next, the company will work with the aforementioned attorneys general and their staff to identify the origin of these robocalls, tracking down US intermediary telecommunications providers and, possibly, the customers originating the calls.

YouMail and AGs are taking advantage of recent policy changes that have caused several states to execute agreements with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to facilitate the sharing of robocall information. As such, YouMail has additionally partnered with the FCC and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) as part of their overall campaign to stop robocalls.

The company also claimed that these efforts, along with previous campaigns available to YouMail users, helped “close robocall campaigns totaling billions of robocalls.”

YouMail has a long history of working to put a stop to illegal robocalls, creating a robocall blocker app and a robocall index that tracks and catalogs calls and makes the data available for research.
