Case Summary

In December 2020, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service provider Alcazar Networks Inc. and its owner settled FTC charges that they facilitated tens of millions of illegal telemarketing phone calls, including some calls from overseas and some that displayed spoofed caller ID numbers. The proposed settlement bars the defendants from similar misconduct in the future, imposes a monetary penalty, and requires them to screen and monitor their customers. This was the FTC’s second case against a VoIP service provider.
