Iowa State Senator Ken Rozenboom has introduced a bill that would impose a civil penalty of up to $40,000 upon businesses that are believed to be using caller-ID "spoofing" tactics. Caller-ID spoofing is when the caller uses technology to make a local or familiar number appear on a call recipient's caller-ID. Last year, the FCC proposed a $120 million fine against a company that allegedly used this tactic. Telemarketers should only display numbers that they actually own.
