FCC closes loophole that let robocalls slip through


Wednesday, the Federal Communications Commission eliminated one big loophole. The agency adopted a new rule saying a company cannot auto-dial your home without your written permission.

Previously companies could robo-call you if you had ever done business with them.

The new rule still allows pre-recorded calls to give you notifications, such as an airline flight change. Also, businesses can still use live telemarketers to call you.
