I suggest if you receive one of these calls, simply hang up. That’s what I do to ALL robocalls.
It seems that big telecom companies are once again trying to disrupt a net neutrality bill in California, this time by robocalling seniors to spread misinformation about the bill. The call states: “Your Assembly member will be voting on a proposal by San Francisco politicians that could increase your cellphone bill by $30 a month and slow down your data,” says a voice on an automated call paid for by legal reform group the Civil Justice Association of California (CJAC). “We can’t afford higher cell phone bills. We can’t afford slower data. We can’t afford Senate Bill 822 (more popularly known as SB822).”
The call urges constituents to contact their state representative and ask them to vote no on the bill, which passed a senate committee last week and will be heard in the Assembly this week.
The statements are outright lies.
