Submission + - CallerID spoofing to be made illegal (loc.gov) 1

MadJo writes: US Congress has just approved a bill that will make it illegal to spoof CallerID.
If someone is found guilty of spoofing his CallerID, he could face fines up to $10,000 per violation.

From the bill:

The amount of the forfeiture penalty (...) shall not exceed $10,000 for each violation, or 3 times that amount for each day of a continuing violation, except that the amount assessed for any continuing violation shall not exceed a total of $1,000,000 for any single act or failure to act.
