ACRONYM ACRIMONY: FCC Classifies Royal Tiger as a C-CIST And That’s a Really Bad Thing
Friday, May 17, 2024

Cysts are bad. Stutters are bad. And if you stutter while saying cyst it probably sounds like “C-CIST” which is… well, even worse.

What is a C-CIST you ask?

Its a Consumer Communications Information Services Threat and a company called Royal Tiger has the dubious (although historic) honor of becoming the first company EVER to be dubbed a C-CIST by the FCC.


Royal Tiger earned this most regrettable distinction “due to its repeated origination and transmission of apparently unlawful robocalls related to the impersonation of government entities, banks, and utility companies.” Yeah that’s pretty awful guys.

What were you thinking Royal Tiger? Especially since you’re using Queenie’s secondary nickname?

Royal Tiger isn’t just a company. Its sort of like a telecom gang–think MEF/Mobile Brotherhood, but even shadier if that’s possible. According to the FCC the group consists of the following individuals:

Royal Tiger is led by an individual named Prince Jashvantlal Anand and his associate Kaushal Bhavsar. Prince Jashvantlal Anand has used the alias “Frank Murphy,” and has served as CEO and Director of Illum Telecommunication Limited and Member and CEO of PZ Telecommunication LLC. Kaushal Bhavsar has ties to India and the United States and has served as CEO of One Eye LLC and Director of Illum Telecommunication Limited.

One Eye, of course, was recently shut down by the FCC in a separate order. The close ties to Royal Tiger didn’t help its cause, obviously.

The Commission also named the clients of Royal Tiger–in a not so subtle suggestion to other carriers that they NOT work with these folks:

  • Mavtel Voip
  • Clevertel
  • Edoro Technologies
  • Q2Serves
  • Spinning Mantra Communications Pvt. Ltd.
  • Cyber Futuristics Pvt. Ltd.
  • Iqbri Telecom Pvt. Ltd.
  • Globalite Collaboration Pvt. Ltd.
  • AARV Services Pvt. Ltd.
  • Coequence
  • Go4Customer/CyFuture
  • SAGA
  • Max Solutions

If your company is on this list and you think you’re being unfairly treated here give me a call. Then again if you’re a company on this list and you’re a scumbag… good.

So yeah. Royal Tiger is now a C-CIST. You don’t want to be a C-CIST.
