FTC Taking Action against Telemarketing Business PDF Print E-mail
March 28, 2012

The Federal Trade commission recently took action by putting a telemarketing business out of operation after they were found to have been bombarding consumers with more than two billion calls, pitching a variety of services. The action which is part of a final settlement order against SBN Peripherals, is part of an ongoing effort by the FTC to crackdown on deceptive robocallers. The order found here bans the defendants from any future telemarketing and also requires them to give up roughly $3million in assets.

The FTC's complaint alleged that the defendants delivered illegal prerecorded phone calls falsely claiming the caller had urgent information about the consumer's auto warranty or credit card interest rate.
