Robocall Company to Face $225 Million Record Fine Proposed by FCC
A telemarketing company will face a $225 million fine brought on by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) today. This is the largest proposed fine in FCC history.
During the first four-and-a-half months of 2019, this company apparently made “approximately 1 billion illegally spoofed robocalls”.
The robocalls claimed to offer health insurance plans from the top health insurance companies including Aetna, Cigna, and UnitedHealth Group, despite having no affiliation with the companies.
The robocalling company also knowingly called people on the “Do Not Call list” as these people were believed to be more “profitable” consumers.
