    From Caller ID Spoofing - Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Caller ID Spoofing - CallerIDSpoofing.info

    April 2010 also became a major turning point for the Caller ID spoofing industry as a whole. The United States House of Representatives passed HR 1258 also known as the infamous Truth In Caller ID Act. This is the first time that the House of Representatives and the Senate have passed bills containing Caller ID Spoofing legislation, as the Senate had previously passed the S-30 bill, but had not acted on it. The bill is now in the hands of the Senate for reconciliation, where it would then head to the presidents desk to be signed or rejected. With the passage of HR 1258 the Caller ID spoofing industry took aim at the law and the misconceptions behind the law. SpoofCard put out a statement saying that it has always supported legislation for Caller ID spoofing, as long as it was done with the proper language, to assure that the spoofing industry would be able to survive, weed out the illegitimate uses, and continue to operate as a legitimate industry. Most illigitmate uses of Caller ID spoofing already violate state and federal laws as separate crimes, so the fact that there is additional legislation to cover Caller ID spoofing, is seen as being somewhat redundant. For example, if Caller ID spoofing is uses to deceive or defraud, by posing as a police officer or a bank, then separate crimes have already been committed. This bill would add an additional crime to existing charges where Caller ID spoofing is used.

    It is unknown what the fate of HR 1258 and S-30 are. Industries such as the Private Investigator and Security Professionals have rallied against the bill as passed by the House, due to vague language. It is also believed that Google is lobbying the Senate to ensure that the bill would not effect its voice services, where Caller ID comes into play, such as Google Voice.

    The are many misconceptions now in 2010, but currently, Caller ID spoofing is NOT illegal at the federal level in the United States and services like SpoofCard and Phone

    Interesting site, btw.
