Description

Virginia Telephone Privacy Protection Act; transmission of caller identification information. Prohibits any person, with the intent to defraud, harass, cause harm, or wrongfully obtain anything of value, from making, placing, or initiating a call or text message or engaging in conduct that results in the display of misleading, false, or inaccurate caller identification information on the receiving party's telephone. The measure prohibits conduct to otherwise (i) circumvent caller identification technology that is designed to allow the receiving party to identify the telephone number, location, or organization from which the call or text message originates or (ii) misrepresent the origin and nature of the call or text message. The measure also prohibits a person, with such intent, from displaying (a) a Virginia area code on the recipient's caller identification system unless the person making, placing, or initiating the call or text message maintains a physical presence in the Commonwealth or (b) the receiving party's telephone number on the contacted party's caller identification system. A violation of these provisions is subject to the remedies provided in the Virginia Telephone Privacy Protection Act (§ 59.1-510 et seq.). Amends § 59.1-510, § 59.1-513, of the Code of Virginia.
