Verizon Wireless Takes Telemarketer to Task
Feb 25, 2009, 2:41 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Verizon Wireless revealed that it has filed a lawsuit against a telemarketing company that has continually called its customers. The company, based in Utah, made over 500,000 phone calls to Verizon Wireless subscribers to advertise the upcoming "Velveteen Rabbit" movie. The telemarketer used an auto-dialing program, and dialed as many as 11,000 calls per hour at a rate of one call every 0.32 seconds. Verizon Wireless say the company is violating the Federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act, which makes it illegal to use an autodialer to make calls to wireless phones. Verizon is seeking an injunction against the company.
