Automatic penalty

The Federal Trade Commission has proposed a settlement with California-based Voice-Mail Broad­casting Corp. and its owner Jesse Crowe over alleged abuse of the Telemarketing Sales Rule. The agency alleges the company violated the law by making more than 46 million calls to consum­ers using automated dialers that did not connect consumers who answered the phone to a sales representative within two seconds of picking up. The proposed court order permanently bars the defendants from violating the rule and requires them to pay $180,000 in civil penalties.
