Is it illegal to call flood scammers?
Flooding scammers is called a TDOS attack (Telephony Denial of Service). There are 2 common types of TDOS attacks:
A single origination point using spoofed phone numbers targeting small organizations, since they rely on critical voice lines and have limited resources to respond quickly.
Distributed & Complex Attacks
Sophisticated spoofing technology with calls appearing to originate from all over the country. Large companies that can’t afford to lose legitimate callers are most at risk. In this scenario, early detection is mission-critical.
There is no law that is on the books for either type of attack. However, just because it isn’t illegal doesn’t mean you can’t be sued for the attack. If you attack an innocent party expect to be sued for lost business and any other damages.
Additionally, if your attack is so significant that you cause a network outage with the phone carrier, and an innocent party needs to call 911 for emergency services but could not, then you will be held liable for injuries or death sustained as a result of an innocent person not being able to call 911.
This is why we recommend reporting scammer numbers to carriers instead of flooding them. It is faster, easier and more effective to report the scammer. In 2 easy steps, and with only 60 seconds of your time, you can take down any scammer! Our directory of phone carrier abuse departments will help you fight this battle with us.
Is Robocalling Illegal?
Unfortunately not. We hope the FCC will get involved with this annoyance but until then there are things you can do. Note that signing up for the National Do Not Call registry only results in MORE calls, not less.
Note how John Oliver is dealing with this situation by RoboCalling the FCC.
In the article above John Oliver “pushes the button” to initiate robocalling the board of directors at the FCC. It is quite a bold move, but since there are no legalities involved with this there is nothing that the FCC can do back to him. This is why a change of legislation is required to combat this growing epidemic. Our organization is working to do just that! Future articles will be forthcoming to explain how it is that we will be fighting for a change of legislation regarding scam and robo calls.
