Here we go again! Another company abusing the use of this wonderful technology we call “robocall”. I stand with the FCC on slamming this individual with the record breaking fine of $120 million. Yes, you read that right. The amazing part, this fine was only based on 80,000 of the over 90 million calls he delivered. Ummm…if he actually had the money we could clean up our nation’s debt, but I digress.
Issue at hand is that he did not follow the Truth in CallerID Act. Basiscally, the number shown on the caller ID was not a valid number. BOOM – you have a violation and now multiply that by potentially $90million. Not good.
Following these many rules from federal to state is possible. You may say to yourself you would never deliver that many calls, so no need to worry. That would be detrimentally wrong. If you are delivering calls via an autodialer, you must follow the rules. Here’s where I can help! Contact me to find out how I can help your company navigate these treacherous waters.
Lesson to be learned here, folks. Please pay attention.
