A lawsuit led by a number of attorneys general is taking aim at a company accused of making robocalls to millions of people.

The lawsuit, led by Ohio, Arizona, Indiana and North Carolina is the first legal action of the Anti-Robocall Multistate Litigation Task Force, which was formed in 2022.

According to the release, the suit alleges that Avid Telecom, a Voice over Internet Protocol service provider based in Arizona, its owner and vice president, violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Telemarketing Sales Rule.

Avid Telecom creates customized robocalling services for its customers and has the ability to place a high volume of calls in a short amount of time.

The release says Avid sent or attempted to send more than 24.5 billion calls between December 2018 and January 2023. More than 90% of those calls lasted less than 15 seconds, meaning they were likely robocalls.

The lawsuit also alleges that Avid helped make millions of calls using spoofed or invalid caller ID numbers, 8.4 million of which appeared to be coming from government agencies or private companies. Some of the entities they are alleged to have used include the Social Security Administration, Medicare, Amazon, DirecTV and credit card companies.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost has filed two other lawsuits regarding robocalls facilitated by Avid.

A June 2020 lawsuit ended in March 2023 with a $244 million settlement with a Texas-based Avid customer. A second lawsuit including 22 defendants for a car warranty robocall scheme is pending.
