FCC Charges Big Fine Against Florida Man Who Made Over 100 Million Robocalls

In the FCC’s mission to stop the scourge of robocalls affecting consumers across the nation, they’ve successfully issued a $120 million fine on one of the biggest robocall spoofing operations.

Despite the efforts to defend himself and the over 100 million robocalls he made over a time span of three-months, Adrian Abramovich, ran a vacation scam that tricked consumers into answering calls and listening to his sales pitch. The fine was based on 80,000 spoofed calls that the FCC was able to verify.

The FCC originally filed a complaint against Abramovich in June 2017, alleging that he had broke the Truth in Caller ID Act of 2009, which does not allow callers from spoofing information to disguise their identity with intent to defraud, cause harm, or wrongfully obtain anything of value.
