Telephone companies want to help Maine settle on robocalls, state attorney general says



AUGUSTA – Maines Attorney General says it will be easier for him to investigate and prosecute illegal robocallers in his state because of a new deal with telephone companies.

Attorney General Aaron Frey says he joined a coalition of 51 lawyers and 12 telephone companies with a goal of combating the annoying robocalls. He says the companies are applying new principles such as the implementation of call blocking technology.

Frey calls robocalls more than a nuisance because they are used to gather personal and financial information. He says his office receives complaints about the calls every day.

Frey says the agreement with the telephone companies will focus on prevention and enforcement. He says the companies will help with enforcement by taking steps such as investigating suspicious callers and working with law enforcement.
