Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) Announcement

On March 11, 2024, the FCC announced the signing of a significant Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Georgia Attorney General’s office. This MoU marks a crucial step in their joint effort to combat the pervasive issue of fraud perpetrated through illegal robocalls.

Establishing a Collaborative Framework

The MoU outlines a collaborative framework between the FCC and the Georgia AG, aimed at intensifying their enforcement actions against illegal robocallers. It delineates a close working relationship wherein both agencies contribute resources and expertise to strengthen state-level investigations.

Joint Enforcement Efforts Using the Memorandum of Understanding

Under this partnership, the FCC and the Georgia AG will pool information and resources to streamline joint enforcement actions against individuals and entities involved in illegal robocalling activities. The agreement encompasses various cooperative measures, including complaint review, records requests, witness interviews, and other necessary steps to build robust cases against suspected perpetrators.

Preventing Duplication, Maximizing Efficiency

Moreover, the partnership using the MoU aims to prevent duplication of efforts by coordinating the activities of enforcement personnel from both entities. By doing so, they seek to optimize efficiency and effectiveness in combating robocall-related scams.

Expanding the Network Against Robocall Scams

With Georgia becoming the 49th state to sign such a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the FCC, alongside Guam and the District of Columbia, this collaboration underscores a growing network of partnerships aimed at tackling robocall-enabled scams. However, the absence of similar agreements in states like Nebraska highlights the ongoing need for comprehensive cross-border partnerships involving federal agencies, states, and other stakeholders in the fight against robocall fraud.
