Anti-Spoofing Act of 2013 - Amends the Communications Act of 1934 to expand the prohibition on the provision of inaccurate caller identification information (which makes it unlawful to cause a caller identification service to knowingly transmit misleading or inaccurate caller identification information with the intent to defraud, cause harm, or wrongfully obtain anything of value) to persons outside the United States if the recipient is within the United States.
Directs the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to prescribe regulations requiring a provider of a spoofing service to verify that any person who uses the service is informed of any applicable federal or state law.
Defines "spoofing service" as a service that permits a user to knowingly cause any caller identification service to transmit misleading or inaccurate caller identification information. Excludes from such definition a service that transmits or displays without alteration caller identification information generated by another person.
Revises the definitions of "caller identification information" and "caller identification service" to include text messages by means of a telephone number and text messaging services.
Expands the categories of IP-enabled voice services that are subject to such prohibition.
