Telemarketer In Legal Trouble

January 7th, 2008 by flanews

Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Charles Bronson is suing a California company for ignoring the states Do Not Call list. Meredian Financial Corporation, of Costa Mesa, California is accused of making at least 19 calls to Florida residents on the list in 2006 and 2007.

They face penalties of up to $10,000 per violation so if they call 10 people, they theoretically could face a $100,000 fine in a courtroom, said Terry McElroy, spokesman for Commissioner Bronson.

The company is also accused of playing a recorded message when consumers answered their phones, which is a separate violation of Floridas law.
