Outcome

9/9/2014--Passed House amended. (This measure has not been amended since it was reported to the House on September 8, 2014. The summary of that version is repeated here.) Anti-Spoofing Act of 2014 - Amends the Communications Act of 1934 to expand the prohibition on the provision of inaccurate caller identification information (which makes it unlawful to cause a caller identification service to knowingly transmit misleading or inaccurate caller identification information with the intent to defraud, cause harm, or wrongfully obtain anything of value) to persons outside the United States if the recipient is within the United States. Revises the definitions of "caller identification information" and "caller identification service" to include text messages sent using a text messaging service. Defines "text message" as real-time or near real-time messages consisting of text, images, sounds, or other information transmitted from or received by a device identified by a telephone number. Excludes from such definition a real-time, two-way voice or video communication. Expands the categories of IP-enabled voice services that are subject to such prohibition to include services with interconnection capability, whether part of a bundle of services or separately, that can originate traffic to the public switched telephone network.

H.R. 3670 – the Anti-Spoofing Act of 2013, sponsored by Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY), would expand current law to prohibit false identification in text messaging and Internet calls in addition to inaccurate caller ID information.

H.R. 3670 would extend a prohibition from the Truth in Caller ID Act of 2009 that prohibits entities from transmitting misleading or inaccurate caller ID information to include text messaging and Internet calls (VOIP) as well. Caller ID “spoofing” is the scrambling of caller identification numbers, and can be used to defraud phone call and text message recipients.
