What’s the Deal With Robocalls?
Telemarketing calls – we all get them. We’ve all received unwanted phone calls with someone selling a product or service. Have you wondered how they got your name and phone number? What legislation or regulations are in place to prevent these unwanted calls? According the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the FTC “takes aggressive legal action to make sure telemarketers abide by the Do Not Call Registry” (in accordance to a post by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)).
To date, the FTC claims they filed 134 enforcement actions against companies for violation of telemarketing regulations and recovered over $50 million in penalties.
