Adrian Abramovich has distinguished himself in infamy, which a record FCC fine of $120 million for his key role in making nearly 100 million robocalls between 2015 and 2016. Last week, the FCC fine handed down in June, was finalized.
The robocalls offered fraudulent discounted travel services to Mexico, the Caribbean and Florida. They falsely claimed to be from Expedia (), Marriott ( ), Hilton ( ) and TripAdviser ( ). In other words, a colossal dirtbag. According to the FCC, Abramovich is , under the business name “Marketing Strategy Leaders,” had not only impersonated real travel companies in his robocalls but had also allegedly interrupted the network of Spōk, a Virginia-based paging provider used by first responders for critical hospital alerts.
What is bizarre is that, despite declared Abramovich the “Kingpin” of illegal robocalls, he Appears uncharged with a crime. If these calls were fraudulent, that seems a conspicuous omission given the extent of his disgraceful business.
