FCC Takes Action On First Do Not Call Violation
from the here-we-go dept
While the FCC has fined AT&T for violating it’s own do not call list and California has gone after a telemarketer for violating the national do not call list, the FCC has finally made their first warning to a company for violating the national list. They’ve been told they face an $11,000 fine – per call – if they continue to violate the list. Here’s where it gets a little strange. The company doesn’t deny that they’ve been calling people on the list. I figure, if they admit that they’ve been willfully ignoring the list, why should they get a warning? Why not set the fine now?
