FTC Sues Dish For Marketing Calls
Claims Company Repeatedly Violated DNC Registry
The Federal Trade Commission has sued Dish network for violating the Do Not Call Registry. According to a statement issued by the FTC
, Dish has a tendency to consistently call people who have specifically asked to be left alone by the company. Dish has made millions of calls since about September 1, 2007 to consumers who had already told them that they did not want to receive any more telemarketing calls from the company. "It is particularly disappointing when a well-established, nationally known company – which ought to know better – appears to have flagrantly and illegally made millions of invasive calls to Americans who specifically told DISH Network to leave them alone," says the FTC.
