A man in America was fined $120 million for making 96 million robocalls. The police say the man was a danger to people. His calls were illegal because many went to emergency phones. Many other calls went to people who did not want to be called. They were nuisance calls, just like spam e-mail.
The man carried out "one of the largest and most dangerous illegal robocalling campaigns...ever". It was a "telemarketing scheme". He tricked people into thinking the calls were from local numbers or from famous companies. Callers were passed on to people who tried to sell them property. The man said he did nothing wrong.
