FTC Files Suit Against XCast Labs for Illegal Robocall Network

Orchestrated telemarketing campaigns even impersonate government entities.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), supported by the Department of Justice, has filed a lawsuit to stop the operations of XCast Labs, Inc.—a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) provider that promoted the transmission of hundreds of millions of unlawful robocalls through its network. Regardless of receiving multiple warnings, XCast Labs continued to enable telemarketers to send illegal robocalls.

The FTC discovered that many of these illicit robocalls were part of organized campaigns designed to generate leads for telemarketing purposes, even involving impersonation of federal officials from the Social Security Administration. Lead generators acquire the gathered information and then sell it to telemarketers, who subject consumers to further unwanted and illegal calls.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For FTC Commissioner Lina Khan as she heads the agency in trying to prevent fraud.
  • For U.S. officials as they seek to protect the American public from robocall scams.
  • For the federal judges that hear suits brought against illegal operators.
