Florida Do Not Call List Working Well
Posted by Benjamin Dona on Thursday, June 5th, 2008 at 3:32pm.
Just recently, Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner Charles Bronson (gotta love his name - how apropos) announced taking legal action against a Sarasota County company for violating the State Do Not Call law.
The legal action seeks an injunction prohibiting the offending company from making any future calls to residents on the list and fines of up to $10,000 for each of the calls made to the prohibited phone numbers is possible. Commissioner Bronson said "the message is that this activity will not be tolerated." Bronson's department has collected or obtained judgments of more than $1.5 million against companies that have called residents on the list. Bronson encourages Floridians to join the program. For more information, consumers can call the department's toll-free hotline at 1-800-435-7352 or visit the Division of Consumer Services website at www.800helpfla.com.
