This act also establishes the "Caller ID Anti-Spoofing Act", which creates the offense of caller identification spoofing. A person commits such offense if he or she enters or causes to be entered, false information into a caller ID service with the intent to deceive, defraud, or mislead the recipient of the call, or the person places a call knowing that false information was entered into a caller ID service with the intent to deceive, defraud, or mislead the recipient of the call. The offense is a Class E felony.

Call recipients may bring action as members of a class, and the Attorney General may initiate legal proceedings or intervene in legal proceedings on behalf of call recipients.

This act is identical to HCS/HB 242 (2021) and HCS/HB 2116 (2020) and similar to SB 664 (2020), HB 2175 (2020), and SCS/SB 144 (2019).
