Kingpin who made 100 million robocalls loses his voice
« on: April 20, 2018, 01:13:43 PM »
How easy is it to download automated phone-calling technology, spoof numbers to make it look like calls are coming from a local neighbor, and robo-drag millions of hapless consumers away from what should be their robot-free dinners?

The question, from Senator Edward J. Markey, was directed at Adrian Abramovich: a Florida man the senator referred to as the “robocall kingpin.” On Wednesday, Abramovich was on the hot seat on Capitol Hill, having been subpoenaed to testify before the Senate Commerce, Science & Transportation Committee as it examined the problem of abusive robocalls.

The answer: just a click, Abramovich said. The technology is easy to use and can be set up by “anyone” from a home office.
