The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has shut down four major groups that are responsible for having placed billions of robocalls.

The following four companies, NetDotSolutions, Higher Goals Marketing, Veterans of American, and Pointbreak Media. All four companies have agreed to pay a settlement with the FTC and are now barred from making robocalls or using automatic dialers. Each defendant faces a fine ranging between $500,000 to $3.64 million.

All four companies claimed they had services for auto warranties, debt-relief services, fake charities, and even home security systems.

Lawmakers have been cracking down on robocalls. A bipartisan group of lawmakers came together to create legislation that would make it more difficult for robocallers to work.

“Night and day, Americans are being inundated by spam calls, it’s more than an annoyance – it’s an invasion of privacy being used to deceive and take advantage of unsuspecting victims,” said Rep. Charlie Crist (R-Fla.).
