AT&T Settles Telemarketing Complaint

Share this content:
AT&T has agreed to pay $490,000 to settle charges that it violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by calling consumers who had asked the company to cease calling them, the Federal Communications Commission said last week.


According to the FCC's complaint, AT&T violated company-specific no-call rules in the TCPA, which predate the national no-call list and remain in effect. The FCC originally sought a $780,000 fine.


Firms that fail to honor company-specific no-call requests can be fined up to $10,000 per violation. According to the FCC, the agency received more than 300 complaints of violations by AT&T.
