Alarm Company Pays $275,000 to Settle DNC Case
ADT, Boca Raton, FL, admitted no wrongdoing as part of the settlement and blamed independent dealers of its alarm systems for the violations. News of the settlement was first reported in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The Missouri Attorney General's office sued ADT in August 2001 in state court. ADT is a division of Tyco International Ltd.
Previously, the largest payout involving DNC violations in Missouri was $75,000 by Access Resource Services, Fort Lauderdale, FL. The company operated the Psychic Readers Network fronted by the once-ubiquitous DRTV personality Miss Cleo.
