Re: Telemarketing Law Question

In article you write:

What legal penalties apply to a telemarketer who autodials all the > numbers in town that are not on the do-not-call list (without checking > whether they are homes, businesses, hospitals...)?

Check 47 USC 227. That sounds like a whole bunch of violations of the telemarketing law. You can't robocall a residence or hospital, and you can't robocall more than one line of a business at a time. The penalty is $500 per violation.

Your university should sue them.
