FCC Orders Blocking of Calls from Robocall Gateway Facilitator

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has issued a Final Determination Order in its continuing effort to block illegal overseas robocalls being transmitted through a gateway voice service provider.

Adopted by the Commission, the Final Determination Order targets One Eye LLC, a Wilmington, DE-based company, for failing to comply with FCC call-blocking rules applicable to gateway providers. Specifically, the Order requires any voice service provider that downstreams calls from One Eye to block all traffic from the company and to cease accepting traffic from the company within 30 days.

The Final Determination Order follows an Initial Determination Order issued against One Eye by the Commission in early April. That Order cited the company for failing to respond to an FCC Notice of Suspected Illegal Robocall Traffic issued earlier this year involving phone calls impersonating representatives from Bank of American and Verizon with claims of “preauthorized orders” placed “on your name.”

Under the terms of the Initial Determination Order, One Eye had 14 days to respond and verify compliance with the FCC rules. The FCC says that One Eye failed to respond to that Order, hence the basis for its decision to issue a Final Determination Order.
