North Carolina AG Sues Company Over Scam Phone Calls

RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein is seeking hundreds of billions of dollars in a lawsuit filed against a Texas company which claims it helped scammers place robocalls inundating phones.

According to a news outlet, the lawsuit says Texas-based telecommunications business Articul8 helped facilitate scam calls across the country, including tens of millions of calls to North Carolinians, even though the company either knew or should’ve known that it was helping criminals try to defraud people.

Articul8 didn’t respond to the newspaper’s email request for comment.
