Robocall Scam Press Conference
U.S. Senator Bob Menendez discusses efforts to fix to a provision hidden in the fine print of the federal budget that passed earlier this month, which would erode “Do Not Call” protections, paving the way for individuals getting more unwanted phone calls, and opening the door to phone scammers posing as government officials seeking debt payments. He was joined by Linden Police Capt. James Sarnicki, Leonia Police Chief Thomas Rowe and Det. Michael Jennings, and Linda Maiorana, a constituent from Bloomfield who received several phony IRS robocalls.
