Verizon Goes On the Offensive Against Telemarketers
Today Verizon Wireless stepped up its attacks against telemarketers who are illegally calling its customers. Verizon claims that a number of firms are working together to call its customers. At one point, the companies involved were calling Verizon subscribers up to 100,000 times per hour. Most of the calls are offering automobile warranties. Verizon's new efforts on behalf of its customers include naming more companies to the suit originally filed in April. The lawsuit says the companies involved are violating the Federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act and state privacy laws. Verizon is seeking an injunction and monetary damages.
